ERIC SCHMITT, Senator for Missouri

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Schmitt voted on a disapproval resolution that blocked the implementation of the Waters of the United States rule, which sought to expand the power of the Environmental Protection Agency over Missouri family farms and ranches:

“Defending our generational farmers and ranchers from federal overreach is one of my top priorities. Farmers and ranchers are the original stewards of the land, and know how to preserve it for generations to come. The Waters of the United States rule was a gross attempt to expand the power of Biden’s army of administrators and place dry creek beds and drainage ditches under federal control. I am proud to have played a part in blocking the federal government from interfering with Missouri agriculture, which is vital to the economy of our state,” said Senator Eric Schmitt.
