senate Bill S. 1140

Does Congress Need to Keep the EPA From Regulating More Bodies of Water?

Argument in favor

The EPA needs to focus its water regulations on improving water quality and navigable waterways, not regulating isolated ponds or groundwater to ensure bugs and wildlife have enough water in their habitat.

To believe that government "protects" the environment shows how sheepish one is. Look at the mess the has enveloped from Gold King Mine near Silverton, CO. "WE THE PEOPLE" are responsible to make wrongs; right when it comes to the environment. Educating the young and not relying on some crony bureaucrats in Washington to take action is our only future.

The EPA is a threat to financial security of this country. the EPA needs to be shut shown completely. There are so many watchdog groups out there now that will scream at the top of their lungs when anyone does anything against the environment the EPA is not needed. All it does is cost boat loads of money small businesses can't afford and strip away freedom and liberty. The EPA should be 100% DEFUNDED!!

The EPA is nothing but another perfect example of what's wrong with this country.

Argument opposed

The EPA needs the flexibility to be able to broadly define “waters of the U.S” in order to ensure that nation’s water is of sufficient quality, and that wildlife habitats can remain healthy into the future.

The EPA's job is to make water (environment) safe, limiting their ability to do their job properly is rather dumb.

The EPA is responsible for making sure our water is safe. Limiting it's remit is directly counter to this purpose.

We are destroying our home and using up all its resources, especially water. It MUST be managed

    At this point in time I do not trust congress perspective of protecting the public good/interest when it conflicts with private desire for more control over and wealth extraction from our natural resources.

    We need an EPA for the EPA. Also farmer's have too much control over water usage, & thanks to the GOPs love affair with livestock. That's what should be regulated. Not the definition of the word "pond." This bill is just another step back, coddling the Chik-FiL-A & Arby's CEOs so they won't have to worry about their farms' water usage.

    We must do whatever it takes to keep our waterways, ponds, lakes, streams, creeks, rivers, inter coastal zones, and coastlines clean. We need to insure clean water to all citizens of this Great Nation.

    Stewardship of the environment is important to a sustainable future for our children and grandchildren. Giving the EPA appropriate regulatory powers to protect our nation's most precious resource is the most prudent vote.

    Water is arguably the most valuable resource his or any nation can manage. Even The Army core of engineers had a different proposal. Limiting our management is not the way to tackle issues with the arguably flawed EPA.

    EPA needs to regulate MORE bodies of water, not less. Water pollution, including ground water contamination from fracking, is still very much in need of monitoring and prevention.

    The EPA is our only hope to keep corporations from destroying our water supply. Regulations are needed.
