"Senate To Consider Nominee for Top EPA Post"

"A Senate panel is set to consider President Obama’s nominee for a top post within the Environmental Protection Agency this week, which will likely stir up the fight over contentious climate change regulations.

On Tuesday, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Janet McCabe for assistant administrator of the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation, which she currently occupies in an acting capacity.

McCabe has testified before Congress multiple times in the past year on the administration’s carbon emissions limits for coal-fired power plants, and the science behind a number of the agency’s regulations."
