On Thursday, I voted in favor of a continuing resolution that funds the federal government until December 11, 2014, and authorizes the arming and training of Syrian rebels to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The legislation passed the Senate and now heads to the president's desk to be signed into law. It was a disservice to the American people that the Senate did not individually vote on the items included in this resolution. Several significant proposals - including funding for the federal government and authorizing President Obama to train moderate rebels in Syria - should have been debated and voted on separately.

I support him in this effort, but going forward the president must lay out a much better strategy for defeating ISIS. Training a few thousand Syrian rebels is not an adequate response to the challenge America faces. This resolution only gives the administration authority through December 11, and without great clarity from the president over the next ten weeks, I am reluctant to offer further support. _____ Bill to Curb Harmful EPA Regulation The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) unceasing campaign to implement job-killing regulations has reached a new low, literally.
