Senators Introduce Legislation to Prevent Proposed EPA Water Rule

SHARE

Last Week Kansas Senator Pat Roberts and 29 other Republican Senators introduced legislation to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from implementing its proposed Waters of the U.S. rule. Agri-Pulse reports the Senators claim the rule would allow the agency to take over all private and state waters in the U.S. by expanding its jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act. Roberts says he wants to make sure the expansion of regulatory jurisdiction over Waters of the U.S. is shelved for good – and he believes this legislation prohibits the EPA Administrator and Army Corps of Engineers Secretary from finalizing the rule or trying a similar regulation in the future.
