U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner released the following statement on the Senate attempt to override the President's veto on the Waters of the U.S. rule: 

"I regret missing the vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the veto message on S.J.Res.22, a bill that would block implementation of the Waters of the United States rule and prevent the Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers from reissuing a regulation that is substantially similar in the future. I voted against S.J.Res.22 last fall and, had I been present, I would have voted to uphold the President’s veto. While this rule is not perfect, it provides important environmental protection efforts."
