WASHINGTON – House Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) released the following statement after the Trump Administration withdrew the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule this week:

“I applaud President Trump’s decision to repeal the WOTUS rule, which has been devastating to entrepreneurs and small businesses across the country. Washington should not have control over all our country’s waterways – especially when they directly affect the livelihood of so many farmers and entrepreneurs. Anytime we can get rid of another unnecessary regulation it is a win for small businesses and our economy overall.”

The House Small Business Committee has held several hearings and sent multiple letters to the Administration over the years about the WOTUS Rule.
