NOT TRUE, please do better research!!
This pertains to the Clean Water Ruling (WOTUS) not the Clean Water Act.
ITS EXACTLY THE SAME
The Rule only defines the Act
"Despite the fact that the rule did no more than clarify existing protections put in place by the Clean Water Act (protections were not extended to any new waters) and that there has been no compelling evidence to suggest that the rule has in any way harmed jobs or industry (if anything, the rule is likely a boon to the over half a trillion dollar outdoor recreation industry), Trump made a declaration of his intention to eliminate the rule his first order of business."
and Directly from the White House:
"For too long, we’ve been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry. President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule. Lifting these restrictions will greatly help American workers, increasing wages by more than $30 billion over the next 7 years."
and Directly from the EPA:
"What the rule does
The rule ensures that waters protected under the Clean Water Act are more precisely defined, more predictably determined, and easier for businesses and industry to understand. Learn more about what the rule does.
What the rule does not do
The rule does not protect any new types of waters, regulate most ditches, apply to groundwater, create any new permitting requirements for agriculture, or address land use or private property rights. Learn more about what the rule does not do."
Now I'm sure that the appointment of a man who had repeatedly sued the EPA to get access for oil companies and is now heading the EPA in accordance with the appointment of oil tycoons to leadership roles throughout the new government ensures there's no real agenda here, just coincidence - you know with the repression of the endangered species act and the new legislation disallowing law suits to corporations specifically
Does there need to be a mineral mine on the Missouri River spewing waste into the river or an oil factory on the deschutes or perhaps a tire recycling plant on the green river for everyone to see what's up and stop fretting and start fighting?
Let's not be naive
