ABSTRACT
The article reports on a legislative bill introduced in the U.S. Congress designed to stop the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers' alleged attempt to expand federal power under the Clean Water Act. The Clean Water Act guidance was reportedly meant to broaden the scope of federal jurisdiction under the Act. The guidance is said to provide the government with the power to regulate waters and even wet areas and land use that were not previously regulated.
