Twenty-nine key Congressional leaders have sent a letter to President-elect Trump to urge the new administration to ‘rescind the harmful and flawed Waters of the US rule’ upon taking office. Over the past several years the NSSGA has met with most of these members on this issue, noting the particular harm that the rule would do to the aggregates industry.

In their letter the members highlighted that the rule expands federal jurisdiction far beyond congressional intent and will have serious consequences for business.

President-elect Trump has repeatedly stated his opposition to WOTUS and intent to stop the rule within his first 100 days in office. “NSSGA joins Congress in asking President-elect Trump relieve the aggregates industry and other businesses of this burdensome and unnecessary rule,” said Emily Coyner, NSSGA Director of environmental affairs.
