The Navigable Waters Protection Rule
If you are a supporter of the President, you can celebrate this. The Navigable Waters Protection Rule went into effect last week in 49 states.
The NCBA's Chief Environmental Counsel Scott Yager discusses what it is, and what it means for you.
"They (Colorado) are relying on the 1987 WOTUS definition and the guidances that have been put in place since then," NCBA Chief Environmentalist Scott Yager said. "The reason it went back to the '87 regulations is because the 2015 rule was repealed through a separate rule making."
The EPA wants to expedite an appeal to block Colorado from carrying out the old guidelines.
The WOTUS revamp faces other court challenges as well.
"It is now an effective law but it's being challenged by a multitude of environmental groups and blue states, and that's where we find ourselves today defending Trump's rule in various courts," Yager said.
The Trump administration is already pursuing an appeal within the state of Colorado.
