Background: By a vote of 53-44, the Senate passed S.J.Res.22, a joint resolution of disapproval of the WOTUS rule. If passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and signed by the President, the resolution would nullify the WOTUS rule. Senator Boozman is an original cosponsor of S.J.Res.22.
Senate Democrats yesterday blocked consideration of the Federal Water Quality Protection Act, which would rein in EPA overreach and gives the EPA direction to write a rule that protects our waters without eroding the rights of landowners. Boozman is also an original cosponsor of the Federal Water Quality Protection Act.
Last month, a U.S. Circuit Court ruling extended an earlier injunction by a federal district court that blocked implementation in 13 states, including Arkansas. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals extended the earlier injunction to all 50 states.
