WASHINGTON– The U.S. House of Representatives passed two bills to stop the deeply-flawed proposed rule defining Waters of the United States under the Clean Water Act.
Both measures were supported by Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02), a vocal critic of the Obama administration’s efforts to expand federal jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act and further extend the reach of federal regulators into peoples’ everyday lives, their businesses and onto their land.
