Sen. Grassley: cases before SCOTUS regarding WOTUS will be heard loudly
There is currently a dilemma regarding the Waters of the U.S. Rule.
Recently, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has filed a brief with the Supreme Court, supporting an Idaho family who has battled the EPA for decades over WOTUS. Ag groups are now asking for clearly defined rules moving forward.
This morning, Senator Chuck Grassley told reporters that the cases will be heard loudly and what his colleagues are doing moving forward: “These cases are going to have a very definite impact on how far this administration can go in regard to WOTUS... We’ve written to the administration that they shouldn’t pursue their new effort to rescind the Trump WOTUS rules...but I joined the amicus brief because I wanted the court to know how I felt about protecting landowners from government regulations without due process or without compensation.”
