Governor Scott Walker Releases Statement on Decision to Stay the EPA’s Waters of the United States Rule
In June, Wisconsin joined one of the many lawsuits that have been filed challenging this rule.

We will continue to monitor this case as we work to protect against the uncertainty caused by the federal government’s overreach.
