The House passed the Transparency in Regulatory Analysis of Impacts on the Nation Act of 2011 (H.R. 2401) September 23. The vote adhered very closely to the party line (with 4 Republicans opposing and 19 Democrats supporting). The Act includes provisions to delay until 2012 an Environmental Protection Agency regulation designed to curb cross-state air pollution and another intended to cut mercury and other air toxics emitted by power generators. A proposal from Representative Gerry Connolly (D-VA) to have the review of EPA rules consider policies that lead to new clean energy jobs and an amendment from Congressmen Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Charles Gonzalez (D-TX) to require the cost review to include future EPA actions that would regulate gasoline and other fuel were also included in the legislation. The bill will have a very difficult time passing the Senate, and the White House issued a veto threat.
