Just Say "NO" to EPA "Waters of US" Rule
By Craig Regelbrugge
EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently extended the comment deadline on the Waters of the United States proposed rule until November 14. Meanwhile, the push-back against the rule is growing.

On October 1, the Small Business Administration's Office of Advocacy asked EPA and the Corps to withdraw the proposed rule. According to the Office of Advocacy's comments, the rule will have a direct and potentially costly impact on small businesses.

AmericanHort will submit comments prior to the November 14 deadline expressing our concerns about the impact of the proposed rule on our members. We are also asking members and partner associations to encourage their Governors and Attorneys General to publicly oppose the rule.
