Ed Whitfield Pushing Amendment to Benefit Electric Utility Donors

Congressman Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.) is pushing an amendment that would further delay the implementation of EPA rules regarding power plants, something that a spokesman from Clean Air Watch “called a ‘hair-raising prospect’ given the ‘massive’ pollution from coal-fired power plants.”

Electric utility company donors, of course, are the top-giving industry to Whitfield so far this year, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
