Reid Urges Republicans to Drop EPA Limits in Budget Talks

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid urged Republicans to abandon their push for policy limits on the Environmental Protection Agency in talks on a proposed $33 billion spending-cut plan designed to end debate on this year’s budget.

“Neither the White House nor the Senate leaders are going to accept any EPA riders they have in their bill,” Reid, a Nevada Democrat, said in a conference call yesterday with reporters.
