The Clean Water Rule proposed last week by the Environmental Protection Agency does a better job than the 2015 Waters of the U.S. rule in explaining which waters are regulated, House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R-Texas) and AFBF President Zippy Duvall wrote in an op-ed published in The Hill.

“It is broad enough to be very protective. It draws a clear enough line to provide fair notice. And it focuses mostly on things that look like water—not regulating land,” they said.
 
Duvall and Conaway encouraged localities, states, farmers, ranchers and many others to submit comments on this proposal “which honors the law, protects clean water and provides clear rules.”
