Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)

While Sen. Susan Collins has been applauded by environmentalists for her stance on climate science and carbon regulations, the senator introduced an amendment to the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act of 2012 (S. 1813) that aimed to "abolish clean air standards for the 2nd largest source of industrial toxic air pollution in America," and eliminate "the Clean Air Act's firm compliance deadlines," and allow compliance to be delayed by up to 15 years more, according to the National Resources Defence Council.
