Statement by Bob Stallman, President, American Farm Bureau Federation, Regarding Passage of H.R. 5078 WOTUS Regulatory Overreach Protection Act - Sept. 9, 2014
WASHINGTON, D.C., September 9, 2014 –“The House of Representatives today stood with farmers and ranchers and against the regulatory overreach of the EPA," said American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman. "Passage of H.R. 5078 isn’t just a clear rejection of the overreach that lies in the EPA’s proposed Waters of the U.S. rule. Today’s action is an unmistakable signal that the tide is turning against those who ignore the constitutional separation of powers in the United States. We will ditch this rule.
