Parnell says delay greenhouse gas rule

From The Associated Press, Saturday, January 2, 2010:

Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell wants the Environmental Protection Agency to halt its effort to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.

In a letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, Parnell says the proposed regulations would bury Alaska’s businesses, institutions and state environmental agencies in paperwork without accomplishing its goal.

Parnell says he wants the EPA to wait on the rules until Congress comes up with a solution to the greenhouse gas problem.
