Disapproving a Rule Submitted by the Environmental Protection Agency Relating to the Mitigation by States of Cross-Border Air Pollution Under the Clean Air Act

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. PAUL. Madam President, I rise in support of clean air, clean water, electricity, and jobs. We need to, if we are going to maintain our economy, discontinue and not overreach with job-killing regulations. We are asking for the continuation of the existing regulations. This action would allow for the continuation of the existing regulations. If we look at EPA v. North Carolina, it says remand without vacating the order.

The other side claims we are for no regulations. We are asking for the continuation of the existing regulations on pollution. The rules are working, but if we keep increasing the burden, we are going to cause increased joblessness.

I reserve the remainder of my time.

Mr. PAUL. There are emotions and there are facts. The facts are that emissions have been declining for six decades. The current rules are working. If you vote for increased regulations, you are voting to kill jobs.
