Senator Blunt Discusses Executive Overreach With St. Joseph Job Creators & Community Leaders

August 28, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. – As part of his efforts to meet with Missourians across the state concerned about the Obama Administration’s continued executive overreach, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) met with St. Joseph-area job creators and community leaders at the Deluxe Truck Stop on August 12, 2014. Blunt’s stop in St. Joseph came on the heels of the U.S. House of Representatives voting to authorize Speaker John Boehner (Ohio) to move forward with a lawsuit in an effort to compel President Barack Obama to uphold his constitutional responsibility to uphold the law.

“Missourians are rightly concerned about executive overreach and excessive regulation by the Obama Administration,” Blunt said. “I introduced the ENFORCE the Law Act in the Senate with the support of more than half of my Republican colleagues, and I’ll keep fighting to stop runaway executive branch power and force President Obama to uphold the Constitution.”

Blunt continues to call for Congress to pass the “ENFORCE The Law Act,” legislation that he introduced to put a procedure in place to allow Congress to authorize a court case against the executive branch for failure to faithfully execute the laws. The ENFORCE the Law Act passed the House in March 2014. For more information on the bill, please click here.

In June 2014, Blunt joined U.S. Senator John Barrasso (Wyo.) and 28 colleagues to introduce the “Protecting Water and Property Rights Act of 2014,” legislation to stop the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from taking over all private and state water in the United States.
