TSCRA Responds to North Dakota Federal Court Ruling to Block EPA Water Rule

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:28:09 CDT

TSCRA Responds to North Dakota Federal Court Ruling to Block EPA Water Rule Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) President Pete Bonds Friday made the following statement on the North Dakota federal court decision on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule:

“TSCRA applauds the North Dakota federal judge’s decision to block the EPA water rule from going into effect,” said Bonds. “Ranchers and landowners across the country have raised serious concerns about this rule and have worried about their private property rights being taken by the federal government. Even the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), which shares jurisdiction over the rule, finds the scientific basis of the rule severely flawed.

“The EPA is interpreting the court decision to apply only to the 13 states involved in the litigation, however there is a strong case being built to prove the ruling applies to the entire U.S. If the EPA water rule does not work for 13 states, there is no way it will work for the rest of the country.

“This court ruling, along with the many concerns raised by relevant stakeholders, should compel the EPA to scrap the WOTUS rule for the entire U.S. and start over with ranchers and landowners at the table.

“TSCRA will continue fighting against the federal government’s agenda-driven plan to expand its jurisdiction over our nation’s land and resources. We encourage state and federal elected officials to do everything in their power to force the EPA to eliminate the flawed WOTUS rule.”
