US Department of Agriculture Secretary Perdue Statement on EPA WOTUS Rule

(Washington, DC (STL.News) U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue today praised the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for defining the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule with the Navigable Waters Protection Rule:

“President Trump is restoring the rule of law and empowering Americans by removing undue burdens and strangling regulations from the backs of our productive farmers, ranchers, and rural land-owners.  The days are gone when the Federal Government can claim a small farm pond on private land as navigable waters,” Secretary Perdue said.  “I thank President Trump and Administrator Wheeler for having the backs of our farmers, ranchers, and producers and for continuing to roll back Federal overreach.  With reforms and deregulation, Americans once again have the freedom to innovate, create, and grow.”
