EPA Looking To Revive Wotus
The EPA announced their intent to revise the definition of “waters of the United States” Otherwise known as "wotus."
U.S Senator Ben Sasse says the rules and regulations have no place in Nebraska.
“The Obama Administration's WOTUS rules were a bureaucratic nightmare for Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers, and the Biden EPA is trying to bring them back. Washington bureaucrats who want to regulate puddles and ditches don’t understand conservation because they don’t understand Nebraska agriculture. Our farmers and ranchers take care of our natural resources better than any unelected bureaucracy. I’m going to fight any effort to bring back WOTUS.”
Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts also weighed in on the news.
“The Biden-Harris Administration must respect the rights of states, who are the rightful stewards of intrastate waterways and other bodies of water. Nebraska will be watching the federal government closely, and will do all that is needed to protect our land and water from Washington, D.C. overreach.”
