Grapegrowers Applaud WOTUS Rollback
Mar 17, 2017
(Wines&Vines) - While members of the wine industry have stepped forward to denounce expedited deportation since U.S. president Donald Trump assumed the presidency, his administration’s move to curtail water regulations has been met with a different response.
Trump signed an executive order Feb. 28 that directs the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) to roll back the Obama Administration’s Clean Water Rule of the Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) regulations that were published in 2015 and imposed many new restrictions on farming.
