"John Podesta: Congress Won’t Stop EPA’s Climate Rules"

"White House counselor John Podesta said congressional attempts to trump EPA’s climate rules will fail.

“They’ll find various ways, particularly in the House, to try to stop us from using the authority we have under the Clean Air Act,” Podesta said at Monday’s White House press briefing.
“All I would say is that those have zero percent chance of working,” he said. “We’re committed to moving forward with those rules.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and some other Senate Republicans want to offer an amendment to bipartisan energy efficiency legislation this week that would undermine EPA’s proposed greenhouse gas rule for future power plants."
