Thompson: New WOTUS Definition Sign of Trouble for Rural America

Thu, 10 Jun 2021 08:02:39 CDT

Thompson: New WOTUS Definition Sign of Trouble for Rural America The Environmental Protection Agency and Department of the Army announced the intent to establish a new definition of "Waters of the United States," or WOTUS. Following the announcement, Republican Leader of the House Agriculture Committee, Glenn 'GT' Thompson, issued the following statement:

"President Trumpís Navigable Waters Protection Rule provided long-overdue certainty and clarity for landowners affected by the scope of 'Waters of the United States' (WOTUS) jurisdiction. The process laid out in todayís announcement by the EPA and Army Corps is a step backward that will return farmers and ranchers to regulatory confusion. If the disastrous 2015 Obama-Biden Rule is any indication of where EPA is headed, rural America is in trouble. I implore the Biden Administration to retain the current WOTUS definition and to not engage in another massive land grab through government overreach."
