Opposition Mounts against WOTUS

As President-Elect Trump vows to curb and eliminate harmful regulations on businesses, the EPA’s WOTUS rule faces mounting, and warranted, opposition.

NUCA, as a part of the Construction Industry Safety Coalition, has filed comments opposing the rule with the EPA and the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in an attempt to have the rule changed substantially or withdrawn entirely.

The Association of Clean Water Administrators leads a coalition of groups that recently also filed an amicus brief with the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals arguing the rule infringes on states authority; joining the chorus of opponents that argue the new rule is far beyond the intended scope of the Clean Water Act and would create significant and confusing additional regulations.

Opponents of the law filed their briefs in early November. The government has until Jan. 18 to respond.

The host of opposition, from a broad coalitions of industries and interests, will hopefully encourage President-Elect Trump to take a look at the rule, and ask his appointees to the EPA, who have not yet been chosen, to reverse course on the WOTUS rule
