NAHB continues to hammer away at WOTUS rule

By NAHB

NAHB’s aggressive lobbying efforts on the congressional and legal fronts to overturn the Biden administration’s new waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule are gaining strong momentum.

NAHB leaders recently testified on Capitol Hill and our leadership team met with several influential lawmakers. These successful lobbying efforts culminated in the House passing the Congressional Review Act (CRA) joint resolution of disapproval on March 9, which would rescind the administration’s new WOTUS rule that is scheduled to go into effect on March 20. The resolution was approved on a vote of 227-198, with nine Democrats voting in favor.

“NAHB commends this bipartisan House vote,” said NAHB Chairman Alicia Huey. “It makes no sense for human-made ditches and isolated ponds on private property to be subject to federal jurisdiction, but that’s exactly what the WOTUS rule does under its intrastate waters category. Adding uncertainty and delay to the federal permitting process needlessly raises housing costs and defers badly needed affordable housing projects.”
