EPA moves toward rewriting Obama water rule:

The Trump administration took a major step Friday toward rewriting an Obama administration water pollution rule in a more industry-friendly way.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers on Friday sent their proposal to redefine “Waters of the United States” to the White House Office of Management and Budget for review. It is the final step before the agencies can release the proposal for public comment.

The Waters of the United States rule, also dubbed WOTUS, defines which bodies of water are subject to federal jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act.
