Biden Pulls Retired EPA Law To Snatch Up American Land And Water
It's no surprise that the liberal left is pushing their agenda, this time under the guise of protecting the environment. The Biden administration has recently approved new regulations on the "Waters of the United States" that will give more power to the federal government and threaten private property owners across the country.
The new regulations, released by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), provide protection for large bodies of water such as lakes and wetlands, but more importantly also for any permanent navigable waterways.
These waterways could be anything from puddles and ditches, to seasonal creeks and culverts. This leaves it open for interpretation as to what type of water bodies can be regulated by federal authorities, and this could put farmers, builders, developers, and other property owners at risk of government overreach.
California Representative Doug LaMalfa has spoken out against this decision, saying that "Rural America doesn't need yet another rule giving the federal government more power over farming and private property." He went on to say that this rule would "make it more difficult to grow food or build anything."
This isn't Biden's first foray into trying to regulate climate change either; his administration has pursued numerous initiatives since taking office in January 2021 including creating an Environmental Justice Office within HHS, committing billions in funding towards developing nations dealing with climate change, and remaining on track with reducing emissions per Paris Climate Agreement standards - regardless of how damaging they may be economically or socially for American citizens.
As concerned citizens, we want clean air and water, but we don't want to be limited by extreme environmental policies that don't have tangible results. We must raise our voices against big government overreach from leftist politicians pushing their own agendas.
