Senate Votes on Sen. Paul Resolution to Halt EPA Overreach


Location: Washington, DC

Today, Sen. Rand Paul invoked the privilege of the Congressional Review Act to force the Senate to vote on an unnecessary and overreaching rule from the Environmental Protection Agency. The resolution of disapproval was defeated 41-56.

"The Obama Administration's regulatory power grab is costing Americans - and the EPA's overzealous job-killing approach to environmental protection is too. I am pro-clean air. I am pro-clean water. I am pro-jobs. Repealing this rule would have afforded us all three of those things," Sen. Paul said after the vote.

Prior to the vote, Sen. Paul took to the Senate floor to speak about the EPA's regulatory overreach.
