LINCOLN, NEB. – "We greatly appreciate the ongoing efforts of Sen. Fischer to eliminate EPA’s “Waters of the U.S.” Rule. Today’s introduction of a resolution by Sen. Fischer and Sen. Ernst to force EPA to withdraw or vacate this far reaching federal regulation is welcomed news to Nebraska farmers, ranchers, and other landowners.
“Even though the federal Sixth Circuit court issued a stay in 2015 immediately blocking implementation of this EPA power grab, we will not rest until this rule is withdrawn and this issue is put to rest.”
The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service and advocacy efforts. More than 61,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
