Senators Respond To Biden’s WOTUS Veto
Following President Biden vetoing the Congressional Review Act to overturn his Waters of the United States rule, U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., released the following statement: “As a third-generation farmer, I know firsthand how critical clean water is to our economy and communities across Montana. After listening to farmers, ranchers, and other stakeholders, it’s clear this rule isn’t right for Montana. I oppose President Biden’s decision to double down on this flawed one-sizefits- all policy, and I’ll continue to stand up to anyone in Washington when they don’t understand the challenges we’re facing here in rural Montana.”
Tester voted in favor of the Congressional Review Act to overturn the Biden Administration’s Waters of the United States rule last week.
U.S. Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., also released a statement in response to Biden’s veto of Daines’ challenge to the administration’s Waters of the United States regulation.
“The Biden administration’s WOTUS rule creates unnecessary confusion and burdensome red tape for Montana farmers, ranchers and landowners — that’s why the Senate voted to overturn it by a strong bipartisan margin. The president’s veto today shows just how far he’s willing to go to impose big government regulations on Montanans. The Biden administration’s regulatory agenda is absolutely out of control and must be stopped.”
