Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the EPA's proposed rescission of the "Waters of the U.S." rule from 2015:

"This is a wise move-and much overdue. Arkansans should make their own decisions about their own farmland-as they have for generations-without the EPA looking over their shoulders. Rescinding this rule will do a lot to restore trust between rural America and the EPA, and I commend the president for taking this step."
