Law360, New York (November 24, 2015, 4:42 PM EST) -- Nearly 90 lawmakers on Monday urged congressional leaders to strip funding for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Water Rule from spending bills for the 2016 fiscal year, the latest legislative attempt to thwart a controversial rule that has already been blocked from going into effect.
The lawmakers, mostly Republicans, said stripping funding for implementation of the rule, also known as the Waters of the U.S. Rule, is a necessary backstop. It's the latest of several congressional efforts to delay or derail the rule.
