Idaho Attorney General Raúl Labrador also rebuked what he called “massive federal overreach” on the part of the Biden administration. “The Biden WOTUS rules would subject Idaho citizens to massive federal overreach on their own land and hamper Idaho job creators, creating a barrier for Idaho’s farmers, ranchers, and small businesses that depend on access to their land and Idaho resources,” Labrador said in a statement Monday. He said allowing the rule to take effect would subject Idaho landowners to excessive federal bureaucracy that would result in expensive compliance costs.
Big victory against Biden: Last night a federal court blocked the Admin’s radical “waters of the US” rule, which imposes a leftist environmental agenda on Texas, crushing new regs, and oppressive economic costs.

The issue here isn’t water. Most Americans want clean water and support measures to ensure public access to it. But the WOTUS rule spotlights once again that Democrats constantly advocate measures that expand Big Government overreach — whether it’s compulsory mask-wearing, vaccine mandates, forced racial diversity in schools and businesses or federalization of the murders of unborn children. Ironically, Democrats frivolously accuse Republicans of being “fascist” and “authoritarian” while simultaneously trying to usurp state sovereignty and personal autonomy.
