SENSE Act Rolls Back EPA Directives, Westerman Says

March 8, 2018

This week, the House passed the SENSE Act. This bill would roll back a one size fits all bureaucratic overreach by the EPA. Instead of allowing unelected individuals to set energy policy, this bill puts authority back in the hands of people with more knowledge and common sense. By rolling back burdensome and hard to achieve directives by the EPA, Congress is stepping in and saying enough is enough. In the last year, the new administration and Congress have been hard at work unwinding many heavy-handed Obama era regulations. It is my hope that this vote encourages additional rollbacks and cooperation with Congress.
