Republicans vow EPA fight as Obama touts China climate deal

WASHINGTON, Nov 12 (Reuters) – Republican congressional
leaders on Wednesday wasted no time in criticizing what they
called President Barack Obama’s “one-sided” climate deal with
China, using the announcement to declare war on the
administration’s plan to use executive actions to combat carbon
emissions.

In brokering a high-profile pact with China, the Obama
administration knew it would preempt one of the most often-cited
arguments Republicans have used to argue against mandatory
domestic carbon cuts: China will continue to pollute unabated.

Senate Democrats may vote on Keystone in lame duck session

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Senate may hold a vote on a bill to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada when it returns from recess, largely to boost support for Democrat Mary Landrieu’s run-off election to retain her Louisiana seat.

Lawmakers return to Washington on Wednesday for a “lame duck” session and will try to wrap up some legislation, such as spending bills, before the Republicans take control of the Senate in the new year.
