WOTUS Rule Infringes on Private Property Rights

WASHINGTON — American Energy Alliance President Thomas Pyle released the following statement on EPA’s finalized “Waters of the United States” rule:

“EPA’s Waters of the United States rule is an attack on individuals’ private property rights under the guise of protecting our country’s waterways. In reality, the rule isn’t about protecting waterways or wetlands. It’s about increasing the size and scope of the federal government and giving Washington bureaucrats more control over what American citizens do on their own property. The WOTUS rule goes far beyond the scope of the Clean Water Act and the Constitution as it usurps the states’ regulatory control over waters within their borders. EPA should withdraw this overreaching and unconstitutional rule.”
