repeal of wotus
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released a proposed rule on June 27 that rescinds the 2015 Obama Administration definition of the "Waters of the U.S." (WOTUS). NPC has gone on record as a strong supporter of reducing regulatory burdens, especially when they inhibit growers' ability to farm. Revoking this flawed WOTUS proposal is a positive step toward that goal.
