Hooray! Senate Overturns EPA/Army Corps Water Rule

The infamous “Waters of the United States” rule allows the EPA and the Army Corps to regulate almost any privately-owned land with standing water as a federal wetland, blocking it off for economic development.  It is one of the most invasive regulations in American history.

Good news: a bipartisan bill to ban it is finally headed to Biden’s desk after it passed the Democratic Senate 53-43.

Bad news: this one Biden says he WILL veto.

We commend four Senate Democrats and an independent for believing there should be some limits to federal Clean Water Act regulatory power:

      • Cortez Masto (D-NV)
      • Manchin (D-WV)
      • Rosen (D-NV)
      • Sinema (I-AZ)
      • Tester (D-MT)

The enviros were not pleased with them:

This is one of the most anti-growth green initiatives in Washington in modern times.

If you have a stream or small pond or a creek on your property, the Feds May prohibit any development or building – and they can put you in jail if you fail to comply. (Meanwhile, they are giving Get Out of Jail Free cards to violent criminals.)
