West Virginia senator pushes coal bill as counterweight to EPA

, Feb 26 (Reuters) – As the Obama
administration readies rules to force all U.S. power plants to
lower the rate at which they produce greenhouse gases, Senator
Joe Manchin of West Virginia, a major coal state, is trying to
steer a bill through the Senate that he said would hold off the
Environmental Protection Agency.

The bill that Manchin, a Democrat, has co-sponsored with a
fellow coal-state lawmaker, Kentucky Republican Representative
Ed Whitfield, would severely weaken the federal Clean Air Act,
environmental groups say.
