Our Position:

We support this bill.

Dear Senator Paul,

On behalf of more than 1.8 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I strongly support S.J.Res. 27, using Congressional Review Act (CRA) authority to express congressional disapproval of EPA’s new Cross State Air Pollution Rule. Your bill not only stops a bad regulation that will cause energy prices to rise; it also holds federal bureaucrats accountable by putting a check on overregulation.

The EPA’s Cross State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) requires 28 states and the District of Columbia to reduce power plant emissions that can cross state lines and contribute to smog and soot pollution for their neighbors. States have as little as six months to comply, even though it takes up to three years to order and install the abatement technology.
