Rep. Marino Applauds Trump Administration's Withdrawl of WOTUS Rule

June 28, 2017
Press Release

Washington D.C.—Congressman Tom Marino (PA-10) issued the following statement following the Trump administration’s withdrawal of the Waters of the United States rule, commonly referred to as WOTUS.

“I applaud the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw the Waters of the United States regulation.  This was an egregious overreach by the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers that would have expanded the agencies’ power to impose restrictions over waters and lands used by farmers, ranchers and landowners.  The EPA already has extremely expansive and invasive powers, the last thing we need is another over expansive regulation.  The Federal Government should leave the regulation of the states to the states, Pennsylvania knows best how to protect its environment and waters.”
