Colin Woodall of NCBA Weights in on Executive Order on WOTUS

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 15:41:13 CST

Colin Woodall of NCBA Weights in on Executive Order on WOTUS President Donald Trump has issued an Executive Order on Tuesday that calls for the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers to reconsider the Waters of the US rule. The order directs the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct a formal review of the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, which took effect Aug. 28, 2015, and ostensibly was implemented to clarify the agency’s authority over various waters. That jurisdiction - based on several U.S. Supreme Court decisions - had included “navigable” waters and waters with a significant hydrologic connection to navigable waters. But the regulation broadened that to include, among other water bodies, upstream waters and intermittent and ephemeral streams such as the kind farmers use for drainage and irrigation. It also covered lands adjacent to such waters.


A large number of ag groups and lawmakers are very pleased with the word on WOTUS from the Trump White House. Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with Colin Woodall, Vice President for Government Affairs with the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, one of the most vocal groups in the ag community critical of the WOTUS rule. You can hear Hays and Woodall talk about the Executive Order and what it means to the process of unwinding the finalized rule by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.
