Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst made the following statement regarding the repeal of the WOTUS rule:

“Repealing the WOTUS (Waters of the U.S.) rule puts an end once and for all to one of the worst ideas to ever come out of Washington, D.C. President Trump has made good on his promise to fix this problem. Anyone whose livelihood is working the land simply could not comply no matter what they did. WOTUS had to go and we appreciate the efforts of this Administration and members of the Missouri Congressional delegation to make it happen.”
