Third District Congressman David Young today lauded the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit’s nationwide stay on the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Water Rule.
Young has been a vocal critic, calling it a “deeply flawed rule.”
Today he said,
“This is good news. Today’s court ruling on Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) reinforces what Iowans have been saying all along: this confusing and job-killing rule is a federal land grab. It hurts Iowa farmers, job creators and workers, communities, and private land owners.
“We have now seen the U.S. judicial system block the rule from going forward. In the House of Representatives we have been leading the fight, using several legislative measures to try and stop this damaging rule. I will continue working with my colleagues in the House Appropriations Committee, on which I serve, and on the House floor to find a solution to stop this rule.”
Young has been a vocal critis of the WOTUS rule, and discussed it in depth on The Wheels Down Politics Show.
