Louisville news: Rand Paul blocking oil and gas pipeline safety rules that even Kentucky oil and gas pipeline companies want edition [News]

U.S. Senator Rand Paul
  • "Syndicated pretty much everywhere via the Associated Press (and thus just the latest totally awesome advertisement for the State of Kentucky), Rand Paul protects our liberty: 'A senator who opposes federal regulation on philosophical grounds is single-handedly blocking legislation that would strengthen safety rules for oil and gas pipelines, a bill that even the pipeline industry and companies in his own state support. Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s opposition to the bill hasn’t wavered even after a gas pipeline rupture last week shook people awake in three counties in his home state of Kentucky.'" [Barefoot and Progressive]
