ABSTRACT
The article reports on the markup of the Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011 by the U.S. House Energy and Power Subcommittee. It explains that this action is in opposition to the climate change initiative launched by U.S. President Barack Obama and challenges the authority of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with regard to the Clean Air Act. Aside from the importance being given by House Republican leaders to the bill, the legislation has also garnered notable Democratic support.
