Washington, DC – Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued the following statement after signing an amicus brief for the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court case, Sackett v. EPA:
“The ‘waters of the United States’ rule is an Obama-era relic that gives the EPA control over everything from puddles to streams, and does nothing to protect American waterways. I am proud to join my colleagues in this amicus brief to define the scope of what can be considered navigable waterways and stop the Agency’s overreach. I hope that the Supreme Court will finally put an end to the regulatory burden and give our farmers and ranchers in Wyoming and around the country a much needed reprieve from the federal government’s heavy hand.”
