American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall Applauds EPA's Move to Ditch Flawed WOTUS Rule

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 15:10:11 CDT

American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall  Applauds EPA's Move to Ditch Flawed WOTUS Rule The following statement may be attributed to Zippy Duvall, president, American Farm Bureau Federation:


“Farmers and ranchers across this country are cheering EPA’s proposal today to ditch its flawed Waters of the U.S. rule. We know the importance of clean water, and farmers and ranchers work hard to protect our natural resources every day.


“But this rule was never really about clean water. It was a federal land grab designed to put a straightjacket on farming and private businesses across this nation. That’s why our federal courts blocked it from going into effect for the past two years. Today’s announcement shows EPA Administrator Pruitt recognizes the WOTUS rule for what it is—an illegal and dangerous mistake that needs to be corrected.


“Farm Bureau looks forward to supporting Administrator Pruitt’s proposal. EPA should ditch this rule once and for all, go back to the drawing board, and write a new rule that protects water quality without trampling the rights of businesses and the states.”
