Washington, D.C. – Thursday, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued The Navigable Waters Protection Rule, a long-overdue update defining the Waters of the United States (WOTUS). House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member K. Michael Conaway released the following statement after the announcement:
“This rule provides clarity and consistency for landowners affected by the scope of WOTUS jurisdiction. Our nation’s navigable waters will remain well-protected, while farmers and ranchers will no longer be subjected to ambiguous guidelines and regulatory uncertainty. I applaud the Trump Administration’s dedication to getting this rule right, and look forward to finally ending decades of federal overreach on WOTUS,” said Ranking Member Conaway.
