Trump Administration’s Redefinition of WOTUS Praised by Attorney General Jeff Landry

BATON ROUGE, LA - Today, upon announcement of President Donald Trump’s effort to redefine the Waters of the United States (WOTUS), Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement:

“As someone who has been in the trenches and the courts fighting for federalism and the rule of law, I applaud the Trump Administration’s decision to redefine WOTUS. The previous administration’s rule was an abuse of authority that granted federal control over many bodies of water that were never intended to be governed by the Clean Water Act. Today’s decision is a major victory for Louisiana farmers, developers, and landowners and another defeat of federal overreach. I look forward to the official end of this regulatory nightmare and the beginning of a surge in infrastructure projects and economic development in our State.”
