NCBA Defends WOTUS Rewrite In Court
NCBA, joining other regulated industries, recently filed motions to intervene in California, South Carolina, and Colorado litigation on the Navigable Waters Protection Rule. The Trump Administration’s rewrite of the 2015 Waters of the United States (WOTUS) definition provides much-needed clarity for agricultural producers and maintains important agricultural exemptions. The 2015 WOTUS Rule represented a massive overreach by the Federal government, unnecessarily burdening livestock producers. NCBA will continue working to defend the Trump Administration’s deregulatory agenda, including the Navigable Waters Protection Rule.
