Marshall, Gosar and Yoho lead letter to defund WOTUS

Representatives Roger Marshall (KS-01), Paul Gosar (AZ-04) and Ted Yoho (FL-03) announced the submission of an appropriations language request to the House Appropriations Committee to prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) from using appropriated funds for the “Waters of the United States (WOTUS)” rule, or any substantially similar rule. They released the following statements:“While we have great confidence in President Trump and Administrator Pruitt protecting farmers, ranchers and property owners from this lawless water grab, Executive Branch actions will still take time and there could be subsequent legal proceedings,” stated Rep. Paul Gosar. “Congress must once again utilize the power of the purse and take a clear position against WOTUS by including our funding rider. I applaud Congressmen Marshall and Yoho for their excellent work and have enjoyed leading this fight with them.”...more
