EPA Proposes Wrong Policy at the Worst Time

I couldn’t agree more with this op-ed column written by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, in which she rightly describes the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed climate change regulations as the “wrong policy at the worst time.”

With U.S. unemployment still hovering at 9 percent, any EPA mandate that would send needed jobs overseas while increasing energy costs for consumers and businesses is clearly misguided.

Let’s hope this latest round of EPA proposals meets the same fate as the cap-and-trade policy rejected by Congress last year. Our jobs, economy and food supply depend on it.
