EPA: Withdraw The Water Rule

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (The Corps) have issued a proposed regulation that would place more water bodies under federal authority, which would result in more property rights violations, more time consuming and expensive permits, more regulatory red tape, and less economic development in communities across the country.  Click here to download the template of a letter that describes how this proposed rule would negatively affect property rights, small businesses and economic development.  There is also a place in the letter to describe how this rule could impact your business and clients.
