LETTER: WGA recommends comment period extension for proposed rule, Revised Definition of ‘Waters of the United States’

James asserts, “The proposed rule will have substantial impacts on the balance of state and federal authority to manage and protect the nation’s water resources, as well as the state-federal partnerships that are involved in the implementation of the Clean Water Act.” Read, download the letter.
