MO delegation wants EPA to revoke new WOTUS rule

Missouri’s Congressional delegation has sent a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency asking the agency to revoke the new Waters of the United States Rule.

The delegation said farmers and ranchers in the state should be able to determine how to best manage their land and water, not the EPA. The EPA recently published an updated definition of the WOTUS rule in the federal register in mid-January and already, two national lawsuits have been filed challenging the effort.

The Supreme Court is currently considering the proper scope of WOTUS in the Sackett v EPA and its ruling could also impact the viability of the EPA’s updated WOTUS rule.
