Regan Testifies in Senate Confirmation Hearing re WOTUS

Michael Regan yesterday testified before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works regarding his nomination to head the EPA. Many topics came up, as one would expect. If you would like to hear what the next EPA administrator thinks about WOTUS, click the link below, and go to 2:06 on the timer to hear Regan's answer to Sen. Boozman (Ark.) regarding the 2015 and 2020 rules. Regan talks about "looking forward to convening multiple stakeholder groups" in crafting a new rule, and he references the variability of waters around the country and the need to give states flexibility. That's a tall order. Don't expect a replacement rule anytime soon.
