Clearing up the WOTUS announcement
The EPA and Army Corps of Engineers recently announced plans to revise the definition of the Waters of the U.S. rule under the Clean Water Act.
Many farm groups were critical of President Obama’s 2015 WOTUS rule, and this month’s announcement has renewed concerns about what this move by the Biden administration means going forward.
National Cattlemen’s Beef Association chief environmental counsel Scott Yager says ongoing litigation is the reason behind the move and farmers and landowners don’t need to worry about any immediate changes.
