EPW REPUBLICANS CALL FOR MARKUP OF KERRY-BOXER BILL

Note 5 Weeks Remain Until Copenhagen

Washington, D.C.-Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, issued the following statement on behalf of the minority in response to Chairman Boxer's announcement on the legislative process for the Kerry-Boxer cap-and-trade bill:

"We welcome Chairman Boxer's announcement to delay today's business meeting.  The Republicans want to have a markup of the Kerry-Boxer bill.  So the question before us is how the committee proceeds. There are five weeks until the Copenhagen meetings begin, which, according to the EPA Administrator, leaves enough time for Chairman Boxer to work with us and the EPA to conduct a full economic analysis of Kerry-Boxer.  We hope Chairman Boxer accommodates this request so we can move forward to markup with a complete analysis of Kerry-Boxer's impact on jobs, consumers, ratepayers, families, and small businesses."
