June 27, 2017

Gov. Kim Reynolds issued the following statement Tuesday after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a rule to rescind the Clean Water Rule and redefine “waters of the United States” or WOTUS:

 

“Waters of the United States was a significant and severe case of government overreach by the Obama administration. I want to thank Administrator Pruitt for recognizing that WOTUS forced onerous and unnecessary burdens on Iowa’s farmers and businesses. I also want to express my appreciation to the Trump administration for its continuing commitment to work with states, not against them.”
