OVERNIGHT ENERGY: Sen. Paul seeks Dem backing in EPA floor battle - The Hill's E2-Wire
State of play: The battle over air pollution rules that has become a regular feature in the House could spread to the Senate next week.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) plans to force a vote on his resolution to nix a recently finalized Environmental Protection Agency rule that mandates cuts in power plant air pollution that blows across state lines.
He told reporters that the vote is expected Tuesday or Wednesday. Paul is reaching out to Democrats as he seeks 51 votes to overturn EPA’s Cross-State Air Pollution Rule.
“I think there will be some Democrats supporting us on it,” Paul told reporters in the Capitol Thursday.
