Senate votes to roll back Biden administration clean water rule

  • The Senate has approved a resolution to overturn a Biden administration rule that would expand federal protections for the country’s waterways.
  • President Joe Biden has promised to veto the legislation blocking the “waters of the United States” (WOTUS) rule, which restores protections for hundreds of thousands of rivers, lakes, streams, wetlands and other waterways.
  • The Senate passed the measure on Wednesday under the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to overturn recent executive branch regulations with a simple majority vote.
