Graves calls for halt on new WOTUS

Now that the US Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case against the Waters of the U.S. Rule, Missouri Congressman Sam Graves and Representative David Rouzer of North Carolina say the Biden administration should immediately stop its efforts to issue a new WOTUS definition rule. Graves, ranking member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and Rouzer, ranking member of the Water Resources and Environment Committee claim a new Biden definition “will greatly broaden the federal government’s jurisdiction over privately owned land” and add layers of red tape for farmers and others.

They say the EPA should stop the WOTUS rulemaking process while the Supreme Court considers this case.
