      Missouri senator proposes new bill about the execution of laws

      Sen. Roy Blunt recently proposed the so-called 'Enforce the Law Act'.

      A United States senator from Missouri is currently working on a new bill.

      Sen. Roy Blunt recently proposed the so-called 'Enforce the Law Act'. That act would ensure that the President upholds constitutional responsibility to faithfully execute the law.

      This proposal follows President Obama's threats to take action on the Environmental Protection Agency's Regulatory Overreach. Blunt stresses that it's important to challenge those regulations.

      This act would make sure members of Congress are paying closer attention to what's being made a law, and how it is written.

      "It would simply allow members of Congress if a majority of either house believes the law is not being enforced as written, to go to court sooner rather then later and get that decision made," Blunt said.

      The 'Enforce the Law Act' proposed by Blunt has already been passed by the House of Representatives. The senator says he's received a lot of support for his proposal.
