Bishop Statement on WOTUS Recission


WASHINGTON, D.C., June 27, 2017 -

Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its decision to rescind the Obama Administration’s Waters of the United States Rule (WOTUS). Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement:

“This rule aggrandized federal bureaucrats at the expense of farmers’ water and private property rights. EPA’s decision to stay and now rescind WOTUS is another welcome act from the Trump Administration to return power back to the states and untangle harmful Washington excesses.”
