WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 1, 2017) — Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today released the following statement supporting President Trump’s executive order rolling back the harmful Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, which is hurting our rural communities in Eastern Washington and all across the country.

“President Trump just took action to review the WOTUS rule – Waters of the USA. This is one of the most burdensome EPA rules of recent years. It basically proposed to regulate every mud puddle in America. I heard about it a lot in Eastern Washington. You think about the impact on rural communities on our cattlemen, on our farmers, on our ranchers. Last year I voted to repeal it. This year, president Trump is calling for a review. I’m hoping that he ultimately repeals it and we provide relief to people in Eastern Washington.” — Rep. McMorris Rodgers
