GOP States Renew WOTUS Arguments Amid ‘Indistinguishability’ Doubts

Environmental Chair and Member Jeff Porter was quoted by Inside EPA on a recent ‘waters of the United States’ (WOTUS) rule. 

Jeff says, “The most recent [WOTUS] rule also continues to extend Clean Water Act jurisdiction to ‘tributaries,’ ‘impoundments,’ and ‘wetlands’ that have a ‘continuous surface connection’ to waters that are not traditional navigable waters, the territorial seas, [or] interstate waters’ and that is much harder to square with the Supreme Court’s holding in Sackett.”
