Statement from NAHB Chairman Randy Noel on EPA Sending Revised WOTUS Rule to OMB

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Randy Noel, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a custom home builder from LaPlace, La., issued the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that a revised Waters of the U.S. rule has been sent to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

“We are encouraged that the EPA and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have taken an important step forward to redefine the “Waters of the U.S.” (WOTUS) rule by sending a proposed definition to the OMB for final review prior to proposing the rule in the Federal Register for public comment.

“NAHB looks forward to working with the Trump administration, industry stakeholders, states, and local governments to ensure the EPA and Corps proposal is consistent with Supreme Court precedents concerning the limits of federal jurisdiction over isolated wetlands and ephemeral streams as well as President Trump’s executive order on WOTUS.

“The nation’s home builders expect the forthcoming proposed WOTUS rule will protect our nation’s waterways and promote economic growth my minimizing federal regulatory burdens.”
