WOTUS – RIP

    

As expected, President Trump issued an Executive Order effectively cancelling WOTUS.  After extensive litigation and justifiable protests from the agricultural and livestock communities, this blatant attempt by the EPA to assume authority and impose fines on farmers for potential violations has been consigned to the garbage pile.

The Pork Producers Council and the organized poultry associations including USPOULTRY have commented positively on the Executive Order. 

  

It is hoped that a wooden stake has now been driven firmly into the heart of WOTUS and that under administrator Scott Pruitt we will not experience any rising from the grave.
