American Farm Bureau Analyzing Supplemental Notice on 2015 WOTUS Repeal

Newsroom / June 29, 2018

The following statement on the Environmental Protection Agency’s release of its Supplemental Notice on repeal of the 2015 WOTUS Rule may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation General Counsel Ellen Steen.

“We are closely analyzing the supplemental notice on repeal of the 2015 WOTUS Rule that the EPA issued today. The issuance of this additional notice shows that EPA listened to public comments that showed confusion over what was being proposed and why. This supplemental notice will provide a more meaningful opportunity for public comment by clarifying that EPA’s proposal is to permanently repeal the 2015 WOTUS rule because that rule was illegal in multiple respects. AFBF looks forward to providing further comments in support of the repeal of this unlawful and unconstitutional regulation.”

The notice can be found here.
