Agency PAYGO for Greenhouse Gases Act
This bill requires the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to include an offset in any proposed rule that limits greenhouse gas emissions and imposes increased costs on other agencies. The offset must be from funds available to the EPA and be for all projected increased costs imposed on other agencies.
Agencies may not pass on the cost imposed by the rule on to any rate payer of the agencies.
