Missouri County Tour Press Releases
May 22 2015
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 Scott County, where he toured the Southeast Missouri Regional Port Authority (SEMO Port) on August 13, 2014, and discussed the Obama Administration’s continued executive overreach and over-regulation with local leaders.
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.
“I continue to hear from Missourians all over the state about the impact of executive overreach and over-regulation on their families, farms, businesses, and communities,” Blunt said. “When I visited the Southeast Missouri Regional Port Authority, I heard from local officials concerned with the Environmental Protection Agency’s burdensome water regulations. I’ll continue to fight against the Obama Administration’s blatant overreach, and ensure Missourians have the certainty they need to do their jobs and the control they deserve over their own land. ”
Specifically, Blunt 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.
