ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to restrict the federal government's power to regulate wetlands. The move may give state and local governments greater control over land within their borders and lead to development that could be financed with tax–exempt debt. The court ruled that the Clean Water Act's protection of waters of the U.S. is limited to relatively permanent or continuously flowing bodies of water.
