Washington, D.C. — The American Soybean Association released a statement today in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s announcement of its final Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule:
“When EPA and the Army Corps announced they planned to tweak the flawed WOTUS regulations on the heels of the Sackett decision, we were concerned this could be the outcome,” said ASA President Daryl Cates, a soybean farmer in Illinois.
“These revisions are unfortunately window dressings and leave in place much of the rule’s confusing and harmful foundations. It is even more unsettling that EPA and the Corps plan to finalize this rule without public comment. This revision is a missed opportunity to address very real and impactful farmer concerns.”
