WOTUS Definition Published in the Federal Register 

BISMARCK – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer, R-ND, member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, issued the following statement on the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers publishing a new definition of Waters of the United States (WOTUS) in the Federal Register. The Final Rule will take effect 60 days following publication.    

“It does not make sense to redefine WOTUS while the Supreme Court considers Sackett v. EPA. The new definition also represents blatant overreach by the federal government which intrudes on North Dakota’s jurisdiction over waters within its border and seeks to assert federal control over state and private property. North Dakota was instrumental in achieving the unprecedented stay of the 2015 Obama WOTUS Rule and should lead this fight once again.”
