WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas) today issued the following statement on the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the expanded definition of “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) under the Clean Water Act:

“Today’s decision from the Environmental Protection Agency to withdraw the WOTUS rule and restore some commonsense to our national regulatory system is good news for Texans,” Rep. Granger said. “The rule as expanded under the previous administration was a dramatic example of federal overreach and would have had devastating effects on our state.”
