I strongly oppose Senator Rand Paul's outrageous dirty air assault on important life saving clean air standards.
S.J. Res 27 would not only permanently block a life-saving clean air rule that would save up to 34,000 lives every year, it could potentially prevent EPA from ever issuing a similar rule again.
The Paul bill would use the Congressional Review Act to invalidate EPA's new Cross State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR), and prevent EPA from ever issuing a substantially similar rule to limit air pollution that crosses from one state to another. If the Paul bill passes, it will cost tens of thousands of premature deaths per year, not to mention millions of lost work and school days due to illnesses and billions of dollars in health care costs.
We need strong air pollution rules that protect people, not polluters.
I urge you to reject the Rand Paul Dirty Air Assault. Oppose S.J. Res 27.
