HARPER VOTES TO REPEAL EPA’S WOTUS RULE

HARPER VOTES TO REPEAL EPA’S WOTUS RULE

Washington, D.C. – January 14, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Representative Gregg Harper (R-Miss) released the following statement this afternoon after the U.S. House of Representatives passed a Congressional Review Act Resolution to disapprove of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule:

“The WOTUS rule is yet another example of federal overreach by the Environmental Protection Agency. WOTUS is opposed by many, especially our nation’s farmers, who justifiably fear federal regulation of their land. Additionally, thirty-two states are suing the federal government over the rule’s legality. The joint resolution passed by the U.S. House and U.S. Senate would void the WOTUS rule, ensuring that water regulation remains in the hands of the states where it belongs.”
