U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) joined her Senate Republican colleagues in challenging the Biden administration’s Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule through the Congressional Review Act (CRA), a formal move to halt aggressive rulemaking by a federal agency.

The resolution comes after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced a rule to repeal the Trump administration’s Navigable Waters Protection Rule (NWPR).

“The Biden administration’s WOTUS rule is out-of-touch and overreaching,” said Ernst. “My Senate colleagues and I are working to stop it and provide our farmers and small businesses with much-needed regulatory certainty.”
