Democrats are on the verge of breaking new ground in their effort to protect the Environmental Protection Agency from Republicans’ efforts to gut it.
On Thursday, they’re poised to take up legislation that would stop the agency from taking a vote on a final rule that could force companies to pay a fee for methane emissions from power plants.
If passed, the measure would give states a much more powerful role in deciding how to regulate the EPA, which has been under attack from conservatives in Congress and some states for years.
The bill is being pushed by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who said he expects the bill to become law by the end of the week.
But the legislation is also part of a broader effort by Democrats to win the White House in 2020, which could help them win a Senate majority in 2020.”
It would be a good first step to keep EPA and the nation safe.”

Republicans have been pushing to gut the EPA in a bid to gut protections for the environment, including protections for drinking water, air and soil.
The House has voted to strip the agency of much of its authority and has voted several times to eliminate it.
Trump has also proposed slashing the EPA budget by a whopping 70 percent.
Democrats have proposed increasing the budget of the EPA to $6.7 billion, a proposal that would save $1.3 billion a year.
The agency’s staff of about 500 people would be significantly cut, as would its budget.
Republicans, meanwhile, have said they would not take up the measure, arguing it would be politically difficult.
A spokeswoman for Schumer told The Hill that it is a matter of prioritizing what is best for the EPA.
“We want the best of both worlds,” said spokeswoman Kate Gullion.
It’s a measure that would put pressure on the White of the Environmental Justice Coalition, which represents states that have sued the EPA over climate change. “
But it’s also important to remember that if Republicans were to kill this bill, they would take away the EPA’s most important tool for protecting the American people.”

The coalition, which is led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, has been fighting to protect environmental protections at the agency for years, including the rule that protects people from methane emissions that are released from oil and gas drilling.
The Trump administration has argued that the EPA should protect people from these methane emissions because they can pose a health risk to people and ecosystems.
But states, especially in states that were hit hard by natural disasters in 2016 and 2017, have argued that it’s just as important for the agency to protect public health and the environment.
