Today, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati has granted a temporary stay of the new Clean Water Rule. Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation made the following statement:
"Today’s ruling temporarily delays much needed protections for our nation’s streams and wetlands—and the countless species of fish and wildlife and millions of Americans that depend upon them. In its decision, the court recognized that a rulemaking was ‘long overdue,’ that the rule was based on ‘reliable peer-reviewed science,’ and that the previous status quo was ‘clouded by uncertainty.’ We are confident that the strong scientific basis and clear legal authority underpinning the rule will ensure that it is ultimately upheld in the courts.
