Tipton Praises Withdrawal of WOTUS Rule

July 27, 2017
Press Release


Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) issued the following statement after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Army Corps of Engineers (Army Corps) formally proposed a rule to withdraw the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule:

“The WOTUS rule was the Obama Administration’s most onerous federal water grab and one if its most egregious acts of executive overreach. The rule threatened the private property rights of millions of Western water users who rely on access to their water rights for everything from irrigating crops and providing clean and reliable water supplies, to attracting tourism opportunities through recreation. I applaud the EPA and Army Corps for taking action to withdraw this rule for good.”
