A federal judge recently ruled against the new Waters of the United States rule and Congress is working its way toward disapproving the rule. Courtney Briggs, AFBF senior government affairs director, explained in Newsline that Congress is exercising its authority under the Congressional Review Act.
“They have used that in the House of Representatives to disapprove of the most recently finalized WOTUS rule,” Briggs said. “And they successfully did that with nine Democrats crossing over the aisle, and now we’re waiting on the Senate who will imminently be voting on this CRA resolution. Unfortunately, President Biden has already come out and said that he will veto this resolution.”
A district court in Texas granted a preliminary injunction to prevent the rule from being finalized in two states, Texas and Idaho.
