August 28, 2015
Press Release


HOT SPRINGS -- Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-Hot Springs) issued the following statement following a federal judge's injunction, temporarily blocking the Environmental Protection Agency's Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule:

“The injunction to halt the Waters of the U.S. rule is a first step in the long process to stop one of the Obama administration’s many overreaches. As I have traveled the Fourth District during the month of August, I have seen how the WOTUS rule along with others would negatively impact constituents from Newton County to Miller County and everywhere in between. It is my hope that this injunction is the beginning of the end for President Obama’s overreaching policies that have negatively impacted Arkansas and the United States these last six and a half years."
