Murkowski Claims Resolution To Hamstring EPA Set for June 10 Vote

"The Senate will vote June 10 on a resolution that would undo U.S. EPA's authority to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said yesterday.

Murkowski, the measure's lead sponsor, said she has reached a unanimous consent agreement with Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to call for a floor vote on her resolution after the weeklong Memorial Day recess.

'Reid and I have agreed on the time,' Murkowski said yesterday. 'Until it's typed down in language, nothing is locked in solid, but the agreement that we have that was reached this afternoon was to go for the 10th.'

Reid spokesman Jim Manley declined to comment."
