Mongiardo and Conway Miss Deadline

Trey Grayson has issued a press release to state his support for a Kentucky House resolution that opposes the E.P.A. controlling carbon emissions by regulation (rather than by statute).

Grayson maintains:

The Kentucky House of Representatives is right to ask Congress to block this EPA action without Congressional authorization that could threaten hundreds of thousands of businesses, farms, schools and even home owners by putting them under EPA regulation of carbon emissions. As Kentucky’s U.S. Senator I would support Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s (R-AK) resolution of disapproval regarding EPA regulation of carbon emissions,” said Grayson.

Note that Grayson then takes aim at Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway and the Beshear-Mongiardo administration for missing a key deadline:

While 16 states filed court challenges to the EPA’s finding that greenhouse gases endanger human health and welfare, Kentucky missed the deadline for presenting petitions to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Attorney General Jack Conway and Lt. Governor Dan Mongiardo, both candidates for U.S. Senate, failed to take action and stood silently by while Kentucky missed this critical deadline.

That's a bigger problem for Conway as Attorney General -- who according to Grayson missed what is essentially a statute of limitations for filing suit to protect the Commonwealth.
