U.S. Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso, both R-Wyo., cosponsored Senator Mitch McConnell’s, R-Ky., “Coal Country Protection Act” this week.

The bill would prevent the EPA’s proposed emissions rule from going into effect until the Department of Labor certifies that the rule will not cause a loss in the US GDP, the Department of Energy certifies that the rule will not increase electricity rates, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission certifies that electricity delivery will remain viable.

The senators believe the measure would gain some support from a few Democrats in the Senate, but the majority leader is expected to block any vote on the measure.

In a joint news release, Enzi and Barrasso said they will continue to work to stop the rule through any viable means.
