Senator Blunt Highlights Clay County Visit, Completes Second Tour Of All Missouri Counties

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) recently announced he has successfully completed his second tour of the state since being sworn into the U.S. Senate, visiting each of Missouri’s 114 counties and the City of St. Louis. Along his tour, Blunt visited Clay County, where he discussed the impact of burdensome Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations on small business owners and the local economy.

Blunt has made more than 1,000 stops meeting with Missourians in communities all over the state since joining the Senate. In April 2012, Blunt completed his first tour of every Missouri county. Click here for more information on Blunt’s county tour.

“Across Missouri, I continue to hear about the negative impact of the Obama Administration’s burdensome regulations on farmers, ranchers, small business owners, and private property owners,” said Blunt. “The Northland Chamber of Commerce and small business owners across Missouri have made it clear that the Obama Administration’s misguided policies discourage job creation and hit the poorest and most vulnerable Missourians the hardest.”

Blunt specifically discussed the ENFORCE The Law Act, legislation he recently reintroduced that would put a procedure in place to allow Congress to authorize a court case against the executive branch for failure to faithfully execute the laws. Blunt has long been a vocal opponent of burdensome Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, and recently co-sponsored a bipartisan bill to block the EPA takeover of private and state waters.
