'Reversing the federal land grab'

WASHINGTON— Congressman Will Hurd issued the following statement on the Trump Administration’s withdrawal of the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule:

"The Obama Administration's WOTUS rule was a direct violation of Americans’ private property rights. It would have placed unnecessary burdens on farmers, ranchers, and small business owners across Texas, and negatively impacted our economy. I applaud the Trump Administration for rolling back this burdensome regulation and reversing the federal land grab."
