“This is a huge win for landowners and farmers. The Supreme Court rightly interpreted the clear language of the Clean Water Act, returning power from the bureaucrats at EPA to Congress to create laws constitutionally. Executive rule making doesn’t get to reinterpret Congress’s clear text to invent rules so they can unilaterally control land and people,”said Congressman LaMalfa. “I am happy the Supreme Court continues to look to the plain text of laws rather than the creative whims of bureaucrats. It’s a shame that Americans must go to court to restrain the whims of big government.”
Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou, Sutter, Tehama and Yuba Counties.
