Gianforte Statement on EPA Proposal to Reform Waters of the U.S. Rule

December 11, 2018
Press Release

Montana Congressman Greg Gianforte today released the following statement in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposal to reform the Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule:

“President Obama’s WOTUS mandate further empowers federal bureaucrats in Washington and threatens our Montana way of life, particularly for our farmers and ranchers. The Trump administration today proposed to roll back federal overreach, clarify the federal government’s jurisdiction, and return power to states and tribes to manage their waters. The EPA’s proposal will reduce uncertainty and help Montana’s farmers and ranchers.”
