Georgetown, KY Ryan Quarles’ Commissioner of Agriculture campaign released the following statement today regarding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rule to regulate “the waters of the United States” (WOTUS):
“While it will take time to read and digest what is in the EPA’s final rule, make no mistake, the Waters of the US regulations are bad for KY farmers, coal miners, contractors and essentially every other job creating industry in our state.
Sadly, this is just the latest in a series of unprecedented power grabs by Obama’s EPA, an agency with a job killing track record in Kentucky. This out of control, out of touch federal over-reach would put bureaucrats on our family farms. Enough is enough. As the next conservative agriculture commissioner, I will push back against and fight Obama’s runaway regulators.”
