"House Passes Bill To Stop EPA Climate Program"

"The House of Representatives passed legislation on Thursday that would stop the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating emissions of gases blamed for warming the planet, a day after the Senate rejected similar legislation.

The vote in the Republican-controlled chamber was largely symbolic since the Senate voted down four amendments on Wednesday that would stop or delay implementation of the EPA rules, which began rolling out in January.

The White House has said President Barack Obama would veto any legislation that would permanently stop the EPA's climate regulation."
