HOUSE PASSES WATERS OF THE U.S. BILL

May 15, 2015

Our friends at ICSC report from Washington D.C.: This week the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1732, “Regulatory Integrity Protection Act of 2015,” by a vote of 261-155.

As you may recall, this bill will force the Environmental Protection Agency to withdraw its proposed rule to redefine “Waters of the U.S.” (WOTUS). Further, the legislation mandates that the Agency re-propose the rule after the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers conduct formal consultations with stakeholders — which should have been done during the original rulemaking process.

This is great news and we thank the many groups that are working to help educate policymakers on issue.
