Default EPA, Army Corps draft new Clean Water Act guidelines that threaten to seize control o

Quote:
(NaturalNews) On Wednesday, April 27, the Obama administration's US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and US Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) jointly released a new draft guidance for the federal Clean Water Act that aims to dramatically expand both the scope of what constitutes a "water source," as well as the legal power federal agencies can exert over those water sources.

If enacted, the proposal will basically allow the EPA and ACE to control any stream, pond, or even puddle that they determine "has a physical, chemical or biological connection" to any larger body of water, which includes even privately-owned water sources.

One of the biggest impacts of the guidance will be to reverse previous Supreme Court decisions that have established the proper constitutional limits on the scope of federal government regulatory authority over not only water, but other natural resources.

By undoing these decisions, the EPA and ACE will essentially be giving themselves a free pass to arbitrarily develop and establish their own rules, and they will be able to do so without proper congressional approval.

"Under this new guidance, a bureaucrat at the EPA will be able to dictate radical new rules," said US Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ). "This is just another example of the Environmental Protection Agency's attempt to circumvent Congress and develop rules and regulations that far exceed the authority granted to the agency under existing public law."

According to an Army Corps of Engineers Officer in my neighborhood, the basic definition of their authorization is over "anything that is wet."

No, I will not list his name of rank.

This was not the stated intent of those who organized and authorized the EPA under Nixon. Any of us who voiced concern back then met with the same criticizm as those today who question Carbon taxes and legislative efforts to combat AGW.

Obama and his EPA monkeys are going to feel mighty stupid and useless when the next powers that be tell them to blow their silly regulations out their asses.
