Democrats Duplicitous on Bush’s Clear Skies Bill

They’ll find any excuse to delay the bill

From the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee:

Senate Democrats claim if only they had more information on Clear Skies legislation they might vote in favor of President Bush?¢â??¬â??¢s historic power plant emissions reductions legislation. In reality Democrats reach deep into their bag of tricks searching for an excuse to delay the bill. Beholden to liberal special interest groups who fear an environmental victory by President Bush, Democrats place politics above the environmental needs of the nation.

FACT: History provides clear evidence of the weakness of the Democrat?¢â??¬â??¢s claims of needing more information on Clear Skies. Committee members today have more data on Clear Skies than the committee had when they passed the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 out of committee. Members have better quality data than the full Senate had when they passed the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. They have more data than President Bush had when he decided to go forward with Clear Skies. Finally, when Chairman Jeffords forced a vote on his Clean Power Act of 2002, the Committee had zero data and had only seen the bill for less than one week.
