House Agriculture Committee Chairman Michael Conaway (TX-District 11) applauded the Environmental Protection Agency’s and Army Corps of Engineers’ proposed Clean Water Rule, which will review and revise the definition of ‘waters of the United States’ (WOTUS) to ensure it is consistent with President Trump’s February 2017 executive order.

Chairman Conaway issued the following statement.

" Clear rules and clean water-that's what the EPA should stand for and their recent announcement marks a hopeful new chapter for farm country. The Trump administration’s proposed definition of “waters of the U.S.” is the next step to replacing the burdensome 2015 WOTUS rule and to creating streamlined and simplified rules for all landowners. I applaud this administration for listening to concerns raised by farmers and ranchers and their representatives in Congress. I am eager to see a rule that restores integrity to the regulatory process and supports American agriculture as it seeks to preserve our natural resources.”
