The May Revision includes an additional $1.7 billion, available over the next three years, for State Water Board programs.

The House of Representatives this week passed the Regulatory Integrity and Protection Act (H.R. 1732). H.R. 1732 would require the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) to withdraw the proposed rule published in the Federal Register on April 21, 2014, that defines the scope of waters protected by the Clean Water Act (CWA). Under the CWA, EPA and the Corps, along with the states, serve as co-regulators of activities affecting the nation’s waters.
