LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas' four U.S. representatives are asking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to hold a field hearing in Arkansas on the agency's proposed carbon rule.

The EPA rules announced June 2 set a goal of cutting carbon dioxide emissions by 30 percent nationwide from 2005 levels. The goal's deadline is 2030.

Republican Reps. Rick Crawford, Tim Griffin, Steve Womack, and Tom Cotton sent a letter Tuesday to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy asking that the agency hold a field hearing in Arkansas to examine the impact of the proposed carbon rule on the state, particularly the rural areas.

Do not expect King Obama to allow any such meeting. He has ignored the will of the people with his Obamacare and NSA spying on all Americans and the will of the people and congress with the release of 5 Muslim terrorists and his radical war on carbon to appease the far left environmentalists.
