Judge’s ruling put WOTUS on hold in Texas and Idaho

Contempt of Court Colorado - The Dadvocates


When Oklahoma Attorney General Gentner Drummond filed a lawsuit against the EPA in February and challenged the controversial spread of WOTUS, he called it a “final rule riddled with problems.”

This week, a federal judge agreed with him, but in a separate challenge of WOTUS by the States of Texas and Idaho. It might also raise the prospect of success eventually for Drummond and other attorneys general who challenged the EPA.

As Drummond awaits the status of his lawsuit, one filed along with 23 other states, Judge Jeffrey Brown ruled the Waters of the United States rule announced by the Environmental Protection Agency in late December “poses irreparable harm” to residents of the two states.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton agreed, calling the court decision as major blow to the Biden Administration’s radical environmental agenda.

“The unlawful rule would have saddled Texans across the state with crushing new regulations, slowing our state’s economic development and limiting our job growth,” he said after the judge blocked the implementation of the WOTUS rule reported FOX News.
