Press Release

Washington, D.C.—Congressman Gibbs released the following statement after the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee passes the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act.

“Today, we are one step closer to stopping the Administration’s proposed Waters of the United States rule. The Committee and I have been working closely with states, local governments, farmers, home owners, and other stakeholders who would be negatively affected by this senseless rule.

“We all want clean water, but when a rule like this threatens our economy and the livelihood of so many businesses, it means we need to go back to the drawing board. I believe this rule would have a reverse effect on our nation’s clean water; rather than improving our water quality, it will only be more difficult for Americans to comply. I look forward to the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act heading to the House floor soon.”
