Fred Upton Attacks Obama For Bush-Era EPA Foreign Spending

Energy committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) and the chairs of three subcommittees recently issued a report blasting the Obama administration for Environmental Protection Agency grants to foreign governments and organizations, claiming EPA has “ramped up” overseas “largesse” since the 2009 stimulus package. The Upton report and the accompanying press release assert that the EPA has awarded $27 million to other countries in 2009–2010. In fact, $21 million of that $27 million was initiated under the Bush administration. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) has written a letter to Upton encouraging him to retract the report. (HT: Scott Brophy)
