U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement on the Biden Administration’s attempt to bring back the Obama-era Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rules.

“The Obama Administration's WOTUS rules were a bureaucratic nightmare for Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers, and the Biden EPA is trying to bring them back. Washington bureaucrats who want to regulate puddles and ditches don’t understand conservation because they don’t understand Nebraska agriculture. Our farmers and ranchers take care of our natural resources better than any unelected bureaucracy. I’m going to fight any effort to bring back WOTUS.”
