THE HILL – FRANKEN ANNOUNCED HE IS RESIGNING – GREAT!!!!

 THE BIG STORIES 

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt told House lawmakers Thursday the agency will replace former President Obama’s climate change rule for power plants.  As Timothy Cama reports, Pruitt said at a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing that EPA will be introducing a replacement rule for the Clean Power Plan.  Pruitt had previously only committed to considering a replacement for the rule, which called for a 32 percent reduction in the power sector’s carbon emissions.  Business groups opposed to the Obama rule have been pushing Pruitt to write a replacement to shield companies and the federal government from future litigation on climate and fulfill the EPA’s obligation to regulate power plants’ carbon dioxide.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s deputy director isn’t giving up her fight for control of the watchdog agency. As Sylvan Lane reports, Leandra English asked the District Court for the District of Columbia Wednesday night to block President Trump from naming Office of Budget and Management Director Mick Mulvaney to the interim role. The request is English’s latest maneuver in the fight for control of the agency. English originally sued Mulvaney and the president, claiming the Dodd-Frank Act made her the rightful acting director, but her lawsuit was ultimately dismissed.
