Blunt speaking out on Obama regulations, McCaskill asks for review of Clean Power Plan
Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt has spent a lot of his time back in Washington D.C. for the “Lame Duck” session lambasting the Obama administration for its regulatory overreach.
In at least two floor speeches, some press conferences and an appearance on the Fox News Business Report with Neil Cavuto, Blunt has been very outspoken about the ramifications of the Administration’s actions and their costs to the average American citizen.
Meanwhile, Sen. Claire McCaskilll led a group of Senators in signing a letter asking the EPA to review its “Clean Power Plan to reduce carbon pollution from the country’s power plants, and telling the agency to protect Missouri consumers and employers by making commonsense changes to the content and timeline of the proposed rule.”
The letter, among other things, decries “the short timeframes required for states to develop their implementation plans, and the treatment of cross border renewable resources.” The letter asks the EPA to push back its implementation deadline from 2020 to at least 2030.
A press release from Senator McCaskill’s office also pointed out the state’s senior senator is a supporter of the Keystone XL pipeline project, which is also opposed by President Obama. You can read the release and the letter from the Senators to the EPA here.
