EPA ordered to reconsider WOTUS
Published by Rebecca Bowden,
President Trump is expected to order the EPA and the US Army Corps of Engineers to review and reconsider the controversial Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule.
The executive order would not require the EPA to rescind the WOTUS rule, which has been under a nationwide stay since 2015.
“This is a positive step toward ending the threat of this gross overreach of an agency’s jurisdiction,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO.
The NSSGA has long been against the rule, which posed serious threats to the aggregates industry. As part of this opposition the NSSGA filed a lawsuit against the EPA, a step that was also taken by industry groups and more that half the states.
