Marco Rubio Joins Joni Ernst's Efforts to Rein in EPA
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., announced his support of U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst’s, R-Iowa, bill pushing back against President Barack Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) asserting more authority under the Waters of the United States rule.
“Hardworking Americans have had enough of Washington bureaucrats telling them how to use their land,” Rubio said on Thursday. “The EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers are irresponsible to go forward with this job-killing rule despite the serious concerns raised by farmers, ranchers, manufacturers and small business owners across the country.
“I’m proud to join Sen. Ernst and my Senate colleagues in preventing this harmful overreach and expansion of government jurisdiction from taking place,” Rubio added.
More than 45 other senators are backing Ernst’s bill.
