Collins Applauds Trump Administration Move to Rescind WOTUS

Jun 27, 2017

WASHINGTON—The Trump Administration announced today that it will repeal the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule established by the Obama Administration. Congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.) issued the following statement in response:

"The illogical and overreaching Waters of the United States rule would increase the regulatory burden on northeast Georgia farmers, ranchers, and small businesses.

"It’s a prime example of bureaucracy run amok, and I applaud President Trump and the EPA for moving to rescind the WOTUS regulation and investing in policies that actually serve our communities and steward their natural resources."
