Scott Brown Targeted on EPA Vote

Scott is fighting back against charges that he is siding with special interest polluters against the best interests of the people.

Senator Scott P. Brown, the Massachusetts Republican, yesterday accused the League of Women Voters of being a “pawn’’ of his critics after the nonpartisan group aired a television advertisement attacking him for a vote to weaken the Environmental Protection Agency

The ad targeting Brown is in response to an April 6 vote in which 50 senators, including Brown, voted in favor of a budget amendment that would have taken away the EPA’s ability to regulate greenhouse cases. The measure needed 60 votes to pass.
