"Big Tobacco supports this bill because they have a stake in maintaining the status quo; I don't. They"re happy with a bill that doesn"t stop people from smoking; I"m not. I want real change. We can and we must do better than this bill," said Sen. Michael B. Enzi, Wyoming Republican, the ranking member of the committee.
"The public also has the ability to comment on proposed EPA rules," Mr. Enzi said in response to the rule change. "It's important for people to let this agency know it's not OK for it to take away their freedoms."
