"Green Groups Call on Senate To Reject Manchin Ex-Im Bill"

"A coalition of green groups plan to urge President Obama and senators to oppose a bill reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank over its roll-back of restrictions for financing overseas coal plants.

Friends of the Earth, Sierra Club and Greenpeace said Thursday they are working on letters to Obama and the Senate asking that they oppose the bill.

They oppose Sen. Joe Manchin's (D-W.Va.) proposal because it would block standards adopted by the bank last year preventing it from providing financing for power plants unless they adopt carbon capture technology."
