AFP Commends New The Navigable Waters Protection Rule

01.27.20 09:22 AM

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity (AFP) applauded U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler and the United States Army Corps of Engineers Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works R.D. James for announcing a new Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rule. AFP has consistently advocated for a common-sense definition of WOTUS that more appropriately interpreted the authority of the Federal government*under the Clean Water Act. AFP Policy Analyst Martin Rodriguez issued the following statement: “The old rule’s sweeping overreach created a regulatory sea of red tape that left farmers, ranchers, and millions of hardworking Americans in uncertainty. States and local communities are best equipped to plan the development and use of land and water resources in a sustainable way. Restoring states’ oversight over land management and water resources is a responsible policy choice that better balances the costs and benefits of regulatory actions. We applaud Administrator Wheeler and the EPA for their reasonable rulemaking approach that empowers communities across the country to create economic opportunity and be better stewards of their land and water resources.”
