House Votes to Overturn Clean Water Rule 

Representatives say the rule was government overreach. 

President Biden’s administration had issued a “Water of the United States” (WOTUS) rule relating to “navigable waters” under the Clean Water Act, which has been seen as a government overreach and burdensome to many. The House of Representatives has voted to overturn that rule. 

Members of Congress said that farmers, ranchers, and landowners would have had to bear costly burdens under the regulatory control over the land where there are small streams and wetlands. 

Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee Chairman David Rouzer of North Carolina stated, “Cloaked under the guise of clean water, all this rule does is expand the federal government’s control over states, localities, and private landowners, making it harder to farm, build, and generate economic prosperity” He added, “I encourage the Senate to pass this commonsense resolution to push back against onerous rules like this one.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Congressman Rouzer as he chairs the Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee.
  • For members of the Senate as they consider the administration’s Clean Water Act rule.
