The Environmental Protection Agency finalized a rule Thursday afternoon scaling back an Obama-era regulation farmers and energy producers claimed saddled them with unnecessary burdens.
EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler announced the rule change in Las Vegas, effectively hemming in a regulation restricting the use of fertilizers and pesticides.
President Donald Trump promised to repeal his predecessors Waters of the United States policy when he was running in 2016.
Rolling back WOTUS saves landowners, farmers and businesses from being forced to hire teams of attorneys to tell them how to use their own land, Wheeler told reporters at a meeting of the National Association of Home Builders.
The rollback is one of many the president is administering.
I terminated one of the most ridiculous regulations of all: the last administrations disastrous Waters of the United States rule, Trump told the American Farm Bureau Federations annual convention Sunday.

I feel like adults are back in charge instead of idealistic know-nothing children.
So you probably won’t be putting a bumper sticker on your car proclaiming “grrrrrrreta for supreme ruler!” then? :-)
I appreciate what Trump is doing, but just like every massive DC, unlimited debt-funded bureaucracy from the intelligence community to EPA to Dept of Education - the entire apparatus remains in place, to simply be cranked-up again the next time a destructive socialist is elected to the Presidency.
Oh, the children knew *exactly* what they were doing. They were delivering death to this country by thousands and thousands of cuts.
this is real. this affects real people’s lives.

I have a small Indian stream on some land I own. In the Summer there’s a trickle of water, even when it’s in the 90s. I have horses on the ground, and thought, wouldn’t it be smart to dam up one end of this here little creek, and when it rains, plus the little water flow already there, they’ll be ample water for the horse, not to mention to irrigate the vegetation.
Of course, I was told I could NOT do this by some bureaucrat, when I asked if I could do this.
I assume now that I can?
You wrote a good comment:
“I feel like adults are back in charge instead of idealistic know-nothing children.”
But why did you preface it with “I feel like”? A completely true and accurate statement of fact is:

The real reasons for Obama’s proliferation of law and regulation. Tripping people up on obscure law and regulations is a way to control.
You got that right. That stupid Jarjar president and his wookie tranny wife knew what they were doing.
Doesn’t the change have support in a Supreme Court decision that the Democrats tried to ignore?
Exactly. And they can take their shop of horrors out of the box a lot faster than we can put it back in.
