On July 12, The House Appropriations Committee amended the FY2012 appropriations bill for Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies to strip from EPA regulatory authority over GHG emissions from stationary sources, and a variety of air, water, and solid waste programs. The measure also would cut EPA funding by 18 percent below current spending levels to $7.1 billion in FY2012. Democrats offered amendments to the FY 2012 spending measure to roll back all policy riders, restore cuts to superfund and brownfield programs, EPA's GHG regulatory authority over stationary sources, but the committeeʼs Republican authority quickly killed those measures.
