House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) released the following statement in reaction to a federal judge’s ruling granting a preliminary injunction on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule.
"Judge Erickson's ruling is a significant and rightful win for states' rights. I am pleased that the arbitrary and subjective guidelines imposed by the EPA's WOTUS rule will no longer go into effect today. This ruling is an important check on an Administration that continues to overreach in its authority. Such flawed policy should never see the light of day."
