Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt addresses Missouri house

Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt briefly addressed the Missouri House Thursday.

 

Blunt was especially critical of the federal government’s attempts to regulate family farms

"We don’t need people in Washington DC deciding what farm kids can do on family farms…we don’t need... the EPA trying to spend all this time figuring out how you can farm without dust,” Blunt said.

Blunt told lawmakers not to emulate European governments that seek to exert more control over the daily lives of its citizens.  He also told reporters that he will not make an endorsement in the GOP U.S. Senate primary, where the winner will challenge incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill.
