Fort Worth, Texas – Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) President Pete Bonds made the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed S.J. Res. 22, a Waters of the U.S. disapproval resolution.
“TSCRA appreciates the continued efforts of House leaders to scrap the flawed WOTUS rule, which threatens the private property rights of landowners,” said Bonds. “Delivering this resolution to the president’s desk sends a clear message that we are fed up with government regulations like WOTUS.
“TSCRA encourages the president to sign this resolution and will continue fighting against government regulations that take away the private property rights our country was built on.”
TSCRA is a 139-year-old trade association and is the largest and oldest livestock organization based in Texas. TSCRA has more than 17,000 beef cattle operations, ranching families and businesses as members. These members represent approximately 50,000 individuals directly involved in ranching and beef production who manage 4 million head of cattle on 76 million acres of range and pasture land primarily in Texas and Oklahoma, but throughout the Southwest.
