President Biden vetoes the WOTUS disapproval resolution

A joint resolution filed and passed by Congress to formally disapprove of the new WOTUS rule has been vetoed by President Biden. The Administration has said from the start that the President would not be signing the Bill.

Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas helped lead the charge against the new rule. In response to the veto, he said, “President Biden has once again put D.C. bureaucrats over our nation’s agricultural producers. Farmers and ranchers are the best stewards of our land and are invested in protecting the quality of our nation’s waterways.”

American Farm Bureau President, Zippy Duvall also responded to the news.

“This veto flies in the face of President Biden’s promise to support farmers and ranchers. This rule is a clear case of government overreach that leaves farmers wondering whether they can farm their own land. It’s a shame the President is standing with bureaucrats instead of with the people who stock America’s pantries.”

This veto comes as the ag community waits for the Supreme Court’s decision in the Sackett case.
