Press Release


(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - Congressman Roger Marshall released the following statement regarding the EPA's decision to repeal the Waters of the U.S. rule:

"I commend and thank the Trump Administration for their decisive and effective actions to repeal the misguided Waters of the United States rule.

As Kansas farmers, ranchers, businesses and even municipalities know all to well, WOTUS dramatically expanded the reach of the federal government with minimal improvements in water quality. 

Today’s announcement serves as a tremendous relief to Kansans and provides the regulatory certainty we need to grow. This is yet another exciting step in fulfilling this Administration and Congress’ promise to return government to its proper role."
