Hudson Applauds WOTUS Rollback
WASHINGTON, D.C.- Today, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s Executive Order on Waters of the United States (WOTUS):
“Under President Barack Obama, the EPA wanted to regulate our mill ponds, irrigation ditches and creeks. This was a tremendous threat to our private property rights, which is why I have fought to block it. I applaud President Trump for halting this misguided proposed rule and I will continue to work to protect North Carolina’s farmers, producers and property owners.”
President Trump’s order directs the Army Corps of Engineers and the EPA to review and reconsider the Obama administration’s WOTUS rule and provides instruction to the Attorney General for proceeding with current legal action against the rule.
As an advocate for our farmers, Rep. Hudson has voted for several measures to block WOTUS. This Congress, he has cosponsored H.Res.152 which expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that the WOTUS rule should be withdrawn or vacated.
The WOTUS rule seeks to redefine navigable waters and drastically expand the Clean Water Act (CWA) jurisdiction to irrigation ditches, ponds, creeks, and streams as well as other waters traditionally regulated by states. If implemented, this misguided power grab would give limitless federal control over nearly all state and local waters and have devastating economic consequences for farmers, property owners and communities in North Carolina.
