Fighting for you

Roy Blunt, United States Senator for Missouri Dear Unity, As we sink into the cold winter months, poor families and young people in our state are looking at their energy bills and trying to ensure they can enjoy the holidays with their families without having to worry about making ends meet. Bad energy policies hurt the most vulnerable in our state the most, which is why I've been very outspoken against the EPA's onerous regulations - and I'll continue to fight the Obama Administration's gross executive over-reach in Washington. Yesterday, I spoke [link 1]�on the Senate floor about several costly regulations that hurt our state, and I highlighted my support for U.S. Senator Rand Paul's (Ky.) bill [link 2], the "REINS Act," which would require Congress to approve every new major rule proposed by the executive branch that has an annual economic impact of $100 million or more. I also discussed my introduction [link 3] of the "ENFORCE the Law Act," which would help ensure the president upholds his constitutional obligation to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed." Last week, I filed comments [link 4] urging the EPA to withdraw the Clean Power Plan rule for existing power plants, which is an unprecedented, sweeping action to regulate the entire U.S. electric power sector. I also strongly criticized [link 5] the Obama Administration's Thanksgiving Eve decision to launch what's been called the "most expensive regulation ever." [image = blunt.enews.senate.gov//images/user_images/12_2_14 stakeout.jpg] [link 6] I recently spoke [link 7] about this topic at the Senate GOP Leadership Stakeout, and stressed the fact that bad energy policies disproportionately hurt the poorest families and young people in Missouri. And I addressed [link 8] the Missouri Farm Bureau's 100th annual meeting on Monday, where I discussed [link 9] the administration's proposed Clean Water Act (CWA) rule, which represents a massive land grab. I am calling [link 10] on the administration to conduct a full analysis of all their proposed regulations and share the impact of those regulations on families and job creators. If you'd like to read more, I hope you'll check out my recent op-ed [link 11] on this topic, and join the conversation online by visiting my Facebook [link 12], Twitter [link 13], YouTube [link 14], and Instagram [link 15] pages.

Dear Unity,

As we sink into the cold winter months, poor families and young people in our state are looking at their energy bills and trying to ensure they can enjoy the holidays with their families without having to worry about making ends meet. Bad energy policies hurt the most vulnerable in our state the most, which is why I've been very outspoken against the EPA's onerous regulations - and I'll continue to fight the Obama Administration's gross executive over-reach in Washington.
