BISMARCK – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer R-ND, member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Sackett v. EPA. The ruling, in favor of the plaintiff, narrows the scope of federal regulation over Waters of the United States under the Clean Water Act. 

“Today’s Supreme Court decision finally makes clear what we’ve known all along, the Clean Water Act was never intended to regulate puddles. The Court was right to rein in the EPA’s quest to regulate to the rain drop. Now, the Biden administration must withdraw their Waters of the United States rule in light of the decision and stop trying to circumvent the law. I am hopeful this case puts a stop to the unworkable regulatory ping pong which North Dakotans and landowners have been subjected to for far too long.”
