In response to an announcement that Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt signed a notice to repeal the so-called Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, TSCRA President Richard Thorpe issued the following statement:
“The WOTUS rule was a misguided attempt to control private lands under the guise of clean water. Since 2015, when the rule was implemented, ranchers and private property advocates nation-wide have fought to maintain their rights in the face of this overly burdensome federal regulation. We applaud the EPA’s action to ensure ranchers can continue to provide America with a safe and affordable food supply.”
