The House Republicans, newly strengthened by the recent elections, are taking another step towards fiscal responsibility – a resolution to defund the EPA by $3 billion! : ) They “also included language to strip the agency of its ability to implement climate change rules” !
Third, they will also get rid of (by defunding) the Climate Change Czar, “or any substantially similar position”.
Since we have the majority in the House, this will pass. Now, somewhere I read that the House holds the purse-strings in Congress – I will have to try and find the source, or some corroboration of that; but it is a comforting thought!
