Sen. Paul Statement on EPA Cross State Air Pollution Rule

Aug 21, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Sen. Rand Paul issued the following statement after a federal appellate court struck down the Cross State Air Pollution Rule and stated that the Environmental Protection Agency exceeded its authority under the Clean Air Act in setting upwind pollution limits on states.

"I am pleased to see that the court has confirmed that the Environmental Protection Agency exceeded their statutory authority in issuing the Cross-State Air Pollution rule. I offered a Congressional Review Act resolution of disapproval against this rule last year to protect the rights of states against this attempt by the EPA to raise energy costs and cut jobs at power plants. I will continue to use the resources at my disposal to fight against an out-of-control EPA overreach into the rights of states and the lives of citizens."
