Bacon Statement on WOTUS Ruling

Washington – Rep. Don Bacon (NE-02) today issued a statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Sackett v. EPA, a case relating to the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule. 

“The SCOTUS decision in Sackett v. EPA is a victory for rural America. The EPA’s WOTUS, which is about as clear as mud - by the way, under the WOTUS rule, does a muddy puddle count as water? - is nothing but a regulatory burden. Today, the Supreme Court helped cut through the bureaucratic red tape that hurts farmers and ranchers.”
