    Environmental Protection Agency officials would not be allowed to regulate greenhouse gases under legislation being filed by West-Central Missouri Congressman Ike Skelton and Southeast Missouri Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson.

    Skelton says regulations proposed by the EPA would drastically raise utility rates in Missouri and dramatically harm Missouri farmers.“The EPA is controlled by bureaucrats who are not elected and responsible only to the head of the EPA who is from New Jersey,” Skelton said during a Jefferson City news conference. “I doubt that they understand mid-America, the Midwest, agriculture and what our farmers need to continue to do a good job for our country.”Congresswoman Emerson says the EPA is trying to enforce what it can’t get through Congress.“It is their goal to, in effect, impose these kinds of regulations that will hurt every single business in Missouri,” Emerson said. “It will decimate our agricultural industry. It will increase the cost for our citizens of their electricity; every time they flip on a light switch.”

    For the record Ike is a multi-term Democrat.
