Congressman John Duarte on the EPA’s “WOTUS” Water Regulations
U.S. Representative John Duarte (CA-13), a small business owner and NFIB member, joins Small Business Rundown host Adam Temple to discuss how his small business experienced unfair treatment from the federal government on Waters of the United States (WOTUS) regulation enforcement.
Rep. Duarte explains how he was ordered to stop farming his own land and sued by the federal government for millions of dollars – even though there was no evidence that he damaged a single wetland on his property. Rep. Duarte also describes efforts in Congress to rein in overreaching WOTUS regulation, and how business owners can make their voices heard on this important issue.
Executive Director of the NFIB Small Business Legal Center Beth Milito also joins to discuss the WOTUS legal battle currently at the U.S. Supreme Court.
