Congressman Graves Dissappointed In U.S. House Failing To Override President Biden’s Veto On WOTUS

(MISSOURINET) – It’s now up to the courts to decide the fate of the updated Waters of the United States rule. The U.S. House of Representatives has failed to override President Joe Biden’s veto on WOTUS, which would expand federal power over the nation’s waterways. Missouri Congressman Sam Graves, who led the attempted override, says he is disappointed.

There is still a preliminary court injunction exempting 26 states from the current WOTUS rule, but Graves says there is more work ahead.
