Obama Water Rule Overruled

January 29, 2016

In January 2016, The House overturned Obama’s water rule, known as the “Clean Water Act”,  that would’ve given federal authority over small waterways in the US. The Senate aims to block the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from issuing any similar rules in the future.

The Hill says these kinds of rules would be disastrous to farmers, developers, landowners and other businesses because they would have to receive federal permits for even simple tasks such as digging ditches. The rights of landowners and local governments would be trampled.

The question now is, how do we protect the waters of the United States?
