A.G. Underwood Leads Coalition Of 12 AGs Opposing Trump EPA's Proposed Repeal Of Vital Clean Wat
A.G. Underwood's office press release ---------- Attorney General Barbara D. Underwood, leading a coalition of 12 Attorneys General, on Tuesday called on the Trump Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) to abandon their proposal to dismantle the “Clean Water Rule,” a fundamental clean water regulation adopted in 2015. In detailed comments submitted to Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler and Assistant Secretary for the Army for Civil Works R.D. James, the coalition contends that the repeal of the rule – and reestablishment of the dated, problematic regulations that the rule replaced – “would be arbitrary and capricious and not in accordance with law.” The coalition calls on EPA and ACOE to proceed no further with the repeal.
