Press Release

WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ proposed rule to shift protections and increase regulation of streams and waterways under the Clean Water Act:

“I believe that regulations should be put to three basic tests: (1) be based on a cost-benefit analysis; (2) be based in sound science; (3) and be based on plain common sense. In this light, I have concerns as to the impact the EPA’s new proposed regulations of streams and waterways under the Clean Water Act will have on America’s farming communities, businesses, and others whose livelihoods depend on available water resources.”
