U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Commitee, issued the following statement on the EPA’S WOTUS case in which the Supreme Court held oral argument today.
"The EPA's ridiculous Waters of the U.S. rule is back in front of the Supreme Court today. This thing just won't die. Here's the deal and every Nebraska farmer and rancher gets it: The EPA's WOTUS power grab is crazy. Nebraskans care about conservation because they live it every day. When un-elected bureaucrats in Washington try regulating puddles, ditches, and streams things get crazy. These decisions are managed best at the county and state level where conservation and common sense go hand in hand. The Supreme Court has ruled against bureaucrats who make up laws, and they should do it again."
