Peterson Statement: WOTUS Just as Bad as Anticipated
Wed, 27 May 2015 11:37:12 CDT
House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson Wednesday made the following statement after EPA's release of the "Waters of the U.S." (WOTUS) rule.
"I am disappointed but not surprised that the EPA has decided to move forward with a rule that would increase confusion and red tape. Farmers, ranchers, local communities and businesses all expressed concern with the negative impacts of this rule. Despite that, EPA either wasn't willing to listen or simply just does not get it.
"I am committed to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to explore all available options to ensure these arbitrary and subjective regulations never go into effect."
