NCBA Applauds Introduction of the Define WOTUS Act
WASHINGTON (Aug. 2, 2019) - National Cattlemen's Beef Association Senior Vice President, Government Affairs, Colin Woodall today released the following statement in response to the introduction of the Define WOTUS Act by U.S. Sens. Mike Braun of Indiana and Joni Ernst of Iowa:
"America’s cattle producers welcome the introduction of the Define WOTUS Act. The Trump Administration is working hard to repeal and replace the illegally broad 2015 WOTUS Rule, but finalization of a practical WOTUS definition is only the beginning. EPA will spend years proving what the Senate made clear today: Congress intends the management of America’s waters to be accomplished through cooperative federalism. NCBA appreciates the leadership or Senators Ernst and Braun, and additionally appreciates the Define WOTUS Act’s inclusion of NCBA’s science-based proposal of 185 flow days per year for determining federal jurisdiction."
