WOTUS Deadline Extended To 9/27
PARRISH: Those laws in those regulations were so broad in fact that it allowed the agency to blur the distinction between regulating water and land use. An other words allowed the agency to regulate land use by just claiming the land was water. So it was really problematic for farmers and ranchers.
Parrish says farmers and ranchers have been calling on EPA to ditch the flawed WOTUS rule since it was proposed and that their input is just as important today as environmental groups launch their own campaigns to protect this federal land grab...tape
PARRISH: This rule had a detrimental impact on the farmer's ability to utilize his land we think it is critical that farmers submit comment and we think it is critical that farmers submit comments in support of withdrawing this rule.
