Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the following statement after President Donald J. Trump today signed an executive order to roll back the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule:

“Today, President Trump is rolling back one of the most flawed Obama-era policies: the Waters of the United States rule. This dangerous rule would have given the federal government a say in the private property rights of millions of Americans. I have fought against this dangerous policy since its introduction and am proud to join President Trump in standing up for farmers and landowners across the nation.”

Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011 and serves on the House Appropriations Defense, Military Construction-Veterans Affairs, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees and the House Committee on the Budget.
