Washington – Congressman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.) released the following statement on the Trump administration’s action to withdraw the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule:

I’m glad we now have an EPA that is focused on protecting our country’s natural resources through cooperation with state and local entities rather than coercion through the federal government.”
