McMorris Rodgers Statement on Repeal of WOTUS Rule

WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 27, 2017) – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today commented on the announcement by the Trump Administration of a proposed rule to repeal the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Obama Administration.

“WOTUS is one of the most burdensome EPA rules of the Obama Administration. You think about the impact it’s had on rural communities, on our cattlemen and farmers— it’s making it more and more difficult for hardworking Americans to be successful,” said McMorris Rodgers.” It’s something I’ve heard about frequently in Eastern Washington. Thank you to President Trump and his administration for taking action to ensure this rule no longer targets our rural communities.”
