U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement after President Trump signed an Executive Order that will begin to unravel the Obama administration's Waters of the U.S. rule (WOTUS).
"The EPA's unconstitutional water rule will die; and Nebraska's farmers and ranchers won't shed a single tear. Everyone wants clean water but the bureaucrats at the EPA were out-of-control, writing new laws to regulate puddles and ditches from Washington. Nobody cares more about land and water than Nebraska's producers but nobody here at home voted for these absurd regulations. This is excellent news for the rule of law and Nebraska agriculture."
