Waters of the U.S. ‘prime example’ of failed top-down policies
After the House voted to disapprove of the Obama administration’s Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, a sweeping new EPA regulation with an estimated indirect cost of $465 million a year, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement:
“WOTUS is a prime example of the failed top-down, government-knows-best policies we’ve come to expect from this administration. These regulations, created by unelected bureaucrats unaccountable to the American people, impact millions of hardworking rural Americans in Eastern Washington and across the United States.
“Less than 24 hours after the President pledged to scale back regulations, the People’s House is putting him to the test. I voted to counteract the administration’s unilateral, harmful regulations. The federal government must return decision making to the communities and individuals that know best.”
Just before she went to vote, McMorris Rodgers tweeted this video:
