The EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers have published a rule changing the definition of Waters of the United States (WOTUS). U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee and a strong opponent of the Obama administration’s WOTUS rule, released the following statement:

“The administration is now seeking comment on their new definition of WOTUS. Common-sense rule-making involves input from the people the regulations will impact on a daily basis. I encourage all Nebraskans to review the rule and submit their thoughts and concerns over the next 60 days.”


The official 60-day comment period will end on April 15, 2019. Nebraskans can submit their comments here.
