Missouri has joined other states challenging the Biden administration’s Waters of the United States rule. In the new lawsuit, attorneys general from across the country say the updated WOTUS definition goes beyond the power Congress delegated in the Clean Water Act. Governor Mike Parson says there’s a better definition for WOTUS.
“It’s not everything. I think that’s what they’re trying to do, a blanket policy that gives them the right to come onto your farm to check the water that runs off your barn, check a mud hole or ditch and anywhere where water runs,” says Parson.
