To the Editor,
Congress has become increasingly fixated on dismantling clean air protections and impeding the Environmental Protection Agencyâ€™s (EPAâ€™s) ability to improve public health. Last month, House Leaders passed the TRAIN Act, the most dangerous assault on the clean air protections ever. And now in the Senate, we have Senator Rand Paulâ€™s (R-KY) attempt to utilize the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to thwart the implementation of the life-saving Cross State Air Pollution Rule. The rule is expected to protect the public from deadly toxins emitted by industrial plants in other states, of which citizens of Sen. Paulâ€™s own state of Kentucky would benefit from greatly.
