Lee Says Latest EPA Power Grab Threatens Utah’s Economy

Today, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s new Waters of the United States rule.

"The EPA's latest power grab threatens every cog in Utah's economy,” Lee said. “Our farmers, ranchers, miners, oil and natural gas producers, will all face higher costs thanks to these new intrusive and unnecessary EPA regulations.”
“Perhaps most troubling,” Lee continued, “is the unprecedented lobbying campaign deployed by the EPA to sell its rule to a public that did not want it. This is not how federal agencies are supposed to operate and it is long passed time these bureaucrats were made accountable to the American people.”
