Video: Senator Roberts Stands Up to the EPA Waters of the US Regulations (via Politico)

Senator Pat Roberts (R – KS) took to the Senate floor yesterday to rail against EPA’s proposed “Waters of the U.S.” rule and to gather support for his bill, which would prohibit EPA from moving forward with any changes.

“I think there is a is a file down there in the basement of the EPA, must be a big one – [that contains proposed rules on] rural Virginia dust, the navigable waters situation, endangered species so that the taking of farmers ground to plant native grass to protect the lesser prairie chicken, which we can’t even find, on and on and on – I think it must be labeled ‘What Drives Farmers and Ranchers Crazy,'” Roberts said. Every so often, “someone opens that draw and we go through this whole thing again. …Let’s shelve it for good.” A video of the senator’s full remarks is available here:
