Rep.Yoho Statement on Waters of the U.S. Rule

Mar 1, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Ted S. Yoho (R-FL) issued the following statement on President Trump’s recent executive order dealing with Obama administration’s Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule:

“President Trump’s executive order, directing the EPA to begin the repeal of WOTUS, is welcome news for farmers and ranchers in North Central Florida and across America. This ill-conceived rule is destructive and does nothing but stand in the way of job creation and economic growth. The WOTUS rule is the child of the Obama administration and was a regulation that amounted to nothing more than a federal power grab.  I am happy the president has issued this executive order and I am looking forward to this rule being eliminated.”
