Dear Friend, 

The U.S. Supreme Court just delivered a massive win for farmers, manufacturers, and rural America.

Just last week, the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Sacketts in the Sackett v. EPA case and rebuked the Biden administration’s attempts to erode private property rights in its Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule.

This decision is significant for Minnesota landowners, farmers, and manufacturers alike. For far too long, federal bureaucrats have abused WOTUS’ authority and misinterpreted the Clean Water Act to overregulate land and business owners. This unanimous decision by the Supreme Court turns the tables on the Biden administration by stripping powers from unelected bureaucrats and returning them to the people and their representatives in Congress.

In January, we sent a letter to President Biden, with nearly 200 colleagues, urging him to rescind this harmful rule. In March, both the House and Senate passed a bipartisan resolution, which we proudly cosponsored, to overturn the president’s WOTUS rule. Despite Congress’ overwhelming support, the president vetoed our resolution – choosing unelected bureaucrats over reason. We are thankful that the Supreme Court affirmed that the disastrous rule is unlawful and should not be implemented.

Clean water is a priority for all of us, but bypassing legislative authority and taking away the voice of our rural communities is not a recipe for success. We must empower communities to be good stewards of land, while ensuring bureaucratic red tape doesn’t prevent them from developing their property the way they choose.
