Speaker Boehner on the Latest EPA Power Grab


WASHINGTON, D.C. – May 27, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized its Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule. On May 12, the House passed the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act (H.R. 1732), which requires EPA to withdraw the rule:

“The administration’s decree to unilaterally expand federal authority is a raw and tyrannical power grab that will crush jobs. House Members of both parties have joined more than 30 governors and government leaders to reject EPA’s disastrous WOTUS rule. These leaders know firsthand that the rule is being shoved down the throats of hardworking people with no input, and places landowners, small businesses, farmers, and manufacturers on the road to a regulatory and economic hell.”
