Washington, D.C. -- Today, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah), released the following statement on the EPA's final Waters of the United States rule:
"Today, the Obama administration finalized their Waters of the USA Rule, the most significant power grab ever by the EPA. The rule would expand EPA regulatory authority to streams, ditches and maybe even puddles. The House has already passed legislation stopping this rule. I call on my friends in the Senate to act and stop this executive overreach. I will continue to fight to make sure this rule is not enacted."Read More
