Biden pushes protection for more streams and wetlands, targeting a major Trump rollback

The Biden administration is set to toss out President Donald Trump’s efforts to scale back the number of streams, marshes and other wetlands that fall under federal protection, kicking off a legal and regulatory scuffle over the fate of wetlands and waterways around the country, from the arid West to the swampy South.

Michael Regan, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, said his team determined that the Trump administration’s rollback is “leading to significant environmental degradation.” The EPA and Army Corps of Engineers will craft a new set of protections for waterways that provide habitats for wildlife and safe drinking water for millions of Americans, according to a joint statement.

With the announcement, the Biden administration is wading into a decades-long battle over how far federal officials can go to stop contaminants from entering small streams and other wetlands.

Thank you President Biden.

And I'm quite certain FOX has already turned this in to a 'freedom' stance so people will rise up and fight against the idea of clean water. That they use.

[@324070,Ynotisay] They have bigger fish to fry. Their big headline today: "Indoctrination Camp", referring to Schools liberal indoctrination agenda. Or as the thinking people call it: education where you don't make history up.

No worries, Iowa's Senator is on the case, like a hog on a pile of Iowa corn, topping it off by shitting into the nearest Iowa river.
