Congressman Gibbs Pushes For Termination Of The EPA’s Waters Of The United States Rule

October 6, 2014
Press Release

Washington D.C. – Congressman Gibbs released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) extended the comment period for the second time to the Waters of the United States Rule:

“Today, the EPA has announced that they will be extending the comment period for the second time on the proposed Waters of the United States rule. The EPA should terminate the proposed rule  and act on guidelines set in the bi-partisan bill, the Waters of the United States Regulatory Overreach Protection Act (H.R. 5078),  that the House passed last month. This EPA’s power grab will only hurt businesses around the country and, rather than place burdensome regulations blindly, they should partner with the states to work together just as the Clean Water Act originally intended.”
