Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt Talks WOTUS and State Question 777 at Oklahoma Farm Bureau Legislative Conference

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 20:11:33 CST

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt Talks WOTUS and State Question 777 at Oklahoma Farm Bureau Legislative Conference Making an appearance at the Oklahoma Farm Bureau annual Legislative Conference, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt talked regulatory overkill by the Obama Administration- and the challenges facing getting a yes vote this coming November on State Question 777. After his comments and question and answer time, Pruitt talked with Radio Oklahoma Network Director of Farm Programming Ron Hays about WOTUS as well as State Question 777.


Pruitt told Hays he believes that is safe to expect the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals will leave the stay on the implementation of the EPA Waters of the US Clean Water Rule in place until after it has heard arguments on the merits of the case against the rule and issued their findings. That will take months- and should run the clock out on the Obama Adminstration and EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. Depending on what the court decides on the litigation against WOTUS, that would mean the next resident of the White House and who they choose to head up the Environmental Protection Agency will have the decision whether to appeal an unfavorable verdict or pull the rule as currently written and start over.


Pruitt continues to believe the multiple cases against WOTUS are strong- and will ultimately result in WOTUS being declared null and void.


On State Question 777, Pruitt says there has been legal action filed against him on State Question 777, but he finds it unlikely that the State Question will be pulled from the November Ballot as HSUS and the other plantiffs have asked for. Pruitt says that the supporters of SQ777 will likely find that the key to winning will be mounting a strong campaign in and around Tulsa. He called the Tulsa area "ground zero" when it comes to winning the State Question 777 vote in November.
