Enzi’s statement on final WOTUS rule
by Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi

Washington, D.C. – On May 27, 2015, U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., issued the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) release of the final "Waters of the United States" rule.
"What the EPA is doing is more about control than protection. This final rule is another attempt by the EPA to control our water and by extension state sovereignty, property rights, communities and individuals. It is hard to believe the EPA’s claims that it ‘listened to all perspectives’ in its development. Instead it looks like another massive regulatory overreach designed to take control from the American people and transfer it to one of the federal government’s most power-thirsty agencies. I hope there are enough people who believe this rule is more dangerous than helpful so we can make changes to ensure our rights and water are protected."
