Iowa Farm Bureau Federation statement on U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) definition
The following statement may be attributed to Iowa Farm Bureau Federation President Brent Johnson:
The Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF) appreciates the U.S. Supreme Court‘s unanimous decision recognizing EPA has clearly overstepped its authority under the Clean Water Act in the Sackett vs EPA ruling.
The Court’s respect for private property rights is appreciated by Iowa farmers, and Farm Bureau has called on the Biden administration to do the same and rewrite the WOTUS rule. Farmers are committed to the goal of protecting water quality and deserve a rule that provides clarity. It should not require a team of consultants and attorneys to farm and protect our natural resources.
