EPA Clean Water Act Proposed Expansion - SLF Challenges "Overreach"

November 14, 2014 - Southeastern Legal Foundation today filed a formal Public Comment in the EPA "Waters of the United States" proposed expansion of authority under the Clean Water Act.  The Comments, which slam the unprecedented proposed expansion of authority for EPA over nearly every water and land space in the United States, point out that EPA does not have Congressional authorization to expand definitions written into law in the Clean Air Act - much like the successful U.S. Supreme Court arguments that EPA likewise overreached beyond executive authority in unconstitutionally re-writing portions of the Clean Air Act to attempt to achieve authority to govern greenhouse gas emissions in an overbroad way.

In the Clean Water Act proposed expansion, EPA would claim jurisdiction over floodplains, all wetlands - even those unconnected to other water tributaries - and other "ephemeral" wet areas, including small streams, thus rendering the Clean Water Act term "navigable waters" utterly meaningless.  SLF further cites three (3) significant Supreme Court decisions that have turned back past EPA attempts to snatch jurisdiction over similar wetlands areas.
