WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) joined President Donald Trump in the White House for the signing of an executive order to roll back the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule.
“This is welcome relief for homeowners, small businesses and family farms throughout the country whose ability to use their property was threatened by this EPA overreach. Arkansans don’t need bureaucrats in Washington telling them how to use their land. I applaud President Trump for taking this step to protect the private property rights of citizens, especially farmers and ranchers in Arkansas and across the country,” Boozman said.
Boozman is a staunch opponent of the WOTUS rule and has worked to overturn it. He helped introduce the Federal Water Quality Protection Act and supported a joint resolution of disapproval of the rule.
