U.S. Representative Will Hurd (R-TX) released the following statement regarding Sixth Court of Appeals’ ruling putting a nationwide stay on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule:
“This is an important victory against the overreaching Obama Administration and great news for the agriculture industry and small businesses. Farming and ranching families in the 23rd Congressional District of Texas know that there’s no legitimate reason for the EPA to regulate dry ditches on their land. The WOTUS rule is arbitrary, vague and confusing, not to mention a dangerous power grab that would give the federal government unprecedented control over private property. The entire rule needs to be eliminated.”
