National Corn Growers: WOTUS Veto Harms Farmers

National Corn Growers: WOTUS Veto Harms Farmers
The following is a statement from National Corn Growers Association President Chip Bowling regarding President Obama's veto of a resolution disapproving of the Environmental Protection Agency's new definition of "Waters of the United States" (WOTUS).


"We are disappointed in the President's veto, especially in light of the recent GAO report that stated EPA engaged in ‘covert propaganda’ in an effort to sell the American public on this rule. This administration continues to ignore the will of Congress and the significant impact this will have on our country’s farmers at a time when they cannot afford more regulatory confusion and red tape


“This resolution would have given us the opportunity to work together on a better rule we can all support. Instead, the future of WOTUS remains in the hands of the courts -- which may takes months, if not years, and comes at a considerable cost.'


"Clean water is important to all of us. America's corn farmers are committed to protecting our water resources for future generations. NCGA has and will continue to work with the EPA on this important issue."
