WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) released the following statement in response to the Biden Administration’s revised Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule.
Rep. August Pfluger (TX-11): “Once again, the Biden Administration has revised its definition of the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) to bring more waterways under the control of the federal government. Earlier this year, the Supreme Court made it clear through Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that the administration was committing bureaucratic overreach into WOTUS and did not have the authority to regulate unnavigable waters. Their new rule disregards the guidance of the Supreme Court. President Biden and the EPA don't get to control every drop of water in Texas or tell Americans what they can do on their private property. I will continue fighting for our district against federal overreach.”
