Lamar Alexander says he won’t vote to overturn EPA’s Cross-State Air Pollution Rule.
Citing support for EPA’s goals, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) told POLITICO on Thursday that he won’t support Paul’s bid to halt EPA’s Cross State-Air Pollution rule, which forces cuts in soot- and smog-forming pollution from power plants in the Eastern United States.
“I think the rule is reasonable,” Alexander said, adding that he was working on legislation to slow down EPA’s timelines for cleaning up emissions. “I think the implementation schedule is unreasonable.”
Paul said he’s “99 percent” sure he’ll get a vote Tuesday or Wednesday to stop the EPA via the Congressional Review Act.
