Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, along with three Democrats and 35 fellow Republicans, unveiled a "resolution of disapproval" that would invalidate the Environmental Protection Agency's finding that greenhouse gases endanger human health. "We're being presented with a false choice between unacceptable legislation and unacceptable regulations," said Murkowski. Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, chairwoman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, said the move was "a direct assault on the health of the American people."
