Voters Say EPA Regulations Need Congressional Approval

The Environmental Protection Agency is rolling back a regulation that requires a big drop in carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 2030, but most voters think they shouldn’t be allowed to make such calls without the approval of Congress.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 25% of Likely U.S. Voters think the EPA should be able to implement major regulations without congressional approval. Fifty-six percent (56%) disagree, but 19% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
