“We are pleased the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has formally proposed to repeal the previous administration’s Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule. The controversial rule was a classic example of an overreach of government regulations that would have expanded regulations to essentially every Missouri body of water and stream, no matter how small. We also appreciate Governor Greitens’ comments to EPA asserting that the WOTUS rule was too broad an interpretation of law and that it should be redefined. We look forward to working with other interested parties to develop a rule which is consistent with U.S. Supreme Court rulings but grounded in common sense.”
