The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that regulatory attempts by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to expand the scope of what are considered "waters of the United States" under the Clean Water Act was an overreach. This ruling affirms that the executive branch cannot promulgate regulations beyond the scope of law without consent from Congress.
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement on the Supreme Court’s ruling in Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency.
“Today’s ruling from the Supreme Court is an important check on executive overreach that finally protects Americans from the unlawful decades-long bureaucratic effort to subvert state and local decision making." – Senator Rubio
