Upton may tackle global warming issue more quickly than Issa
When it comes to the immediate issues that incoming House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) plans to tackle this year, climate science and regulation doesn't make the list.
Now, Issa spokesman Kurt Bardella assures Post Carbon that political observers shouldn't read too much into this: "Just because it isn't on our hearing list doesn't mean we're not looking at it."
But given incoming House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton's (R-Mich.) eagerness to take on the Environmental Protection Agency and its efforts to regulate greenhouse gases, it's a safe bet that much of the initial action will take place at Upton's panel, rather than Issa's.
