Earlier this morning, the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced their completion of the final “Waters of the US” rule, which regulates what rivers, streams, and wetlands are subject to federal oversight. Despite an overwhelming number of public comments requesting a significant modification or complete revocation of this rule, the administration has decided to ignore both the opinion of Congress and the American people by pushing forward with this large expansion of federal authority for small and seasonal bodies of water already regulated at the state level. The ambiguous wording of Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule could subject landowners, farmers, and ranchers to jurisdictional challenges and unprecedented levels of compliance costs. I strongly urge a thorough overhaul of the WOTUS rule that takes into consideration the hundreds of thousands of negative comments filed against it. The bipartisan House-passed Regulatory Integrity Protection Act (H.R. 1732) would send the rule back to the drawing board, and I hope the Senate moves quickly to pass this legislation.

In November of last year, the President issued a major executive action on immigration policy that would offer temporary legal status to millions of illegal immigrants, along with an indefinite reprieve from deportation. The President's decision to act alone on this issue contradicts what he has promised in the past, but more importantly it side-steps the rule of law, the separation of powers outlined in our Constitution, and is unfair to the immigrants who came to our country legally. For those reasons, I think it's only right that the injunction filed to block the administration's unilateral action was upheld earlier today.

As Memorial Day weekend draws to a close, it's important to remember and honor the ultimate sacrifices many service men and women have made for our country. And perhaps the most grateful and appreciative way to honor our veterans' memories is to preserve them. Take the time this weekend to remember those who gave everything for us.
