Sullivan Praises Trump Executive Order on WOTUS Rule

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) released the following statement today after attending a meeting at the White House where President Trump signed an executive order that begins to roll back the EPA’s Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rule. 

“I applaud President Trump for his order beginning the review and roll back of the expansive overreach in the WOTUS Rule, which gave the EPA vast new authority over lands across the country, particularly in Alaska. This new order signals a return to the rule of law and prioritizes environmental protection, keeping our waters clean without running rough shod over the Clean Water Act and our economy. I look forward to working with my colleagues and EPA Administrator Pruitt to return to a balanced and statutorily based implementation of our environmental laws.”
