Collins amendment against toxic industrial boiler pollution fails
Susan Collins, Senator, United States.

WASHINGTON DC, US: An amendment to the transportation bill by Senator Susan Collins to block air toxic rules for industrial boilers failed to pass, despite gaining several Democratic votes in support of the Republican minority.The lobbyist-designed amendment (SA 1660 to S.1813), which would have killed the Environmental Protection Agency’s ‘Boiler MACT’ rules for air toxics from incinerators and industrial power plants, failed to reach the required 60-vote threshold on a 52-46 vote. Democrats supporting this attack on public health included Sens Bob Casey, Herb Kohl, Mary Landrieu, Joe Manchin, Claire McCaskill, Ben Nelson, Mark Pryor, and Debbie Stabenow.
