Senate Defeats Murkowski Amendment

Corrected: I got this story wrong in every way possible; I thought the Amendment would give the EPA power to regulate CO2, so I thought Murkowski was on the wrong side of it.

I got it all wrong. Murkowski's amendment was to forbid the EPA from "adjusting" the law as written to give itself non-delegated power to do this, so the amendment's defeat represents a defeat for progress.


The Senate defeated this 47 in favor to 53 opposed, with six Democrats joining the R's.
