randpaul03 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (5/22/13) – Sen. Rand Paul today applauded the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Freedom to Fish Act, which protects fishing access at the tailwaters of dams along the Cumberland River. The act places a two-year moratorium on the Army Corps of Engineers’ plan to install physical barriers in several locations, including at the Barkley and Wolf Creek Dams.
 
“I am thrilled that Congress has taken action to protect Kentucky's residents and businesses from the Army Corps’ burdensome plan,” said Sen. Paul. “This is an encouraging day for Kentucky anglers, recreational enthusiasts, small businesses and lake communities. I’ll continue to fight alongside Kentuckians in stopping government overreach.”
 
Sen. Paul was an original co-sponsor of the bill, which passed the U.S. Senate last week. Rep. Ed Whitfield, who had introduced companion legislation in the House, guided the bill’s passage in that chamber. The act must be signed by the president before it becomes law.
