Are We Any Closer to a Ruling? NCBA's Scott Yager Has the Latest on WOTUS

Are We Any Closer to a Ruling? NCBA's Scott Yager Has the Latest on WOTUS The likelihood for a court’s decision to be made on the Waters of the US (WOTUS) rule may be getting closer according to Scott Yager, environmental council for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA).



“We’re fighting to keep this case at the District Court level,” Yager said. “We’re fighting also, beyond the venue, that the rule is hashed out before judges that know what they’re doing.”



Currently, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has asserted jurisdiction in this case and will begin the process to hear it, which Yager says is not necessarily a bad thing. This particular court actually instituted the current stay on WOTUS that has kept it from being enforced while the courts deliberate the rule’s legality. This is a temporary relief for those that oppose the rule, while they hope for the best, looking toward judges in the court that have acknowledged finding procedural and substantive failures in WOTUS.



Yager says there are a number of different ways this case could go. He says that regardless the judge’s decision though, the losing party will most likely appeal the ruling all the way to the Supreme Court. According to Yager, the Supreme Court has already heard cases related to WOTUS four times over the last 25 years. Yage remains cautiously optimistic for a favorable outcome.



“This thing is going to end up in the Supreme Court one way or another and hopefully this time they’ll get it right,” Yager said.
