House heads home after passing anti-Obama coal bill
The House on Friday wrapped up its pre-election business with easy passage of the Stop the War on Coal Act, a bill intended to show Republican opposition to President Barack Obama's pollution regulations on coal mining and coal-fired power plants.
The bill passed on a 233-175 vote, with 19 Democrats voting in favor and a total of 13 Republicans voting against. It is not expected to advance in the Senate, and drew a veto threat from the White House.
