Sen. Paul Supports Measure to Protect Fishing Access

rand paul 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (5/15/13) – The U.S. Senate today passed legislation that protects fishing access at the tailwaters of dams along the Cumberland River. The legislation prevents the Army Corps of Engineers from moving forward with a plan to install physical barriers in several locations, including the Barkley and Wolf Creek Dams.

Sen. Rand Paul supported the measure, which passed the Senate unanimously as an amendment to the Water Resources Development Act. Sen. Paul visited Lake Barkley last month to meet with local officials and constituents about the Army Corps’ plan and to rally in support of a “Freedom to Fish” bill, which he co-sponsored.

“The measure passed by the Senate today is a welcome alternative to the Army Corps’ burdensome plan, which would hurt Kentucky residents and businesses,” Sen. Paul said. “There is a deep and long love for fishing the tailwaters of the Cumberland River and I am glad we have taken action to help protect fishing access and Kentucky’s economy.”
