Peterson Statement: EPA’s Proposed WOTUS Withdrawal
Congressman Collin C. Peterson (D-MN) made the following statement yesterday in regards to the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to withdraw the Waters of the U.S. rule.
“I strongly support the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to withdraw the Waters of the U.S. rule. I am hopeful this action will start the process of bringing much needed relief for farmers, ranchers, rural businesses and local governments,” Peterson said. “Administrator Pruitt committed to me earlier this year that they would make this a priority, and I will continue to do what I can in Congress to support common sense solutions.”
