Cochran wary of EPA’s clean water clarification
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), ranking member on the Senate Agriculture Committee, has questioned the intent of a proposed rule to clarify the reach of the Clean Water Act over streams and wetlands, and encouraged the agriculture and business communities to weigh in on the environmental regulatory proposal.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, on Tuesday released a proposed rule intended to clarify the definitions of waters subject to government oversight under the Clean Water Act. The announcement of the new rule, titled “Waters of the United States Proposed Rule,” opens a 90-day public comment period.
