Rep. Barton: Bush administration ASKED us to change Clean Air Act

Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) conceded this afternoon that the Bush administration asked him to include provisions that would change the Clean Air Act’s new source review provisions to adopt contested interpretations of the law sought by the White House and the coal-burning electric power industry.

Barton included the provisions in his legislation ostensibly aimed increasing refinery capacity.

“We’re putting this in at the request of the Bush administration. This is the primary request of the Bush administration in this bill,” Barton said during deliberations of his Energy and Commerce Committee.

The proposed changes would permit smokestack industries – including coal-burning power plants, refineries and other major sources -- to increase actual emissions.
