WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Senate today voted through the Congressional Review Act on two resolutions of disapproval, S.J.Res. 23 and S.J.Res. 24, both co-sponsored by Senator Rand Paul. The resolutions would halt the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) destructive implementation of the Clean Power Plan, which would require Kentucky to reduce its carbon emissions by 39 percent. Upon voting on the resolutions, Senator Paul released the following statement:
“Protecting Kentucky’s coal miners and families from President Obama’s overreach has always been a priority of mine, and I will continue fighting every day to stop the destruction of Kentucky coal,” Sen. Paul said.
