10.19.2022 Speaker Pollard Quoted in Bloomberg Law Article on 50th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act

Speaker Pollard was quoted in a Bloomberg Law article, "Clean Water Act Marks 50 Years as Lawyers Say Improvement Needed," on the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act.

The article describes the history and creation of the Clean Water Act, its accomplishments and where it still has room for improvement.

Speaker commented on "the courts, the EPA, and Army Corps of Engineers," noting that they "have been inconsistent in how they interpret the definition of waters of the US, or WOTUS, which has made regulatory compliance difficult locally and increased cost of state agency implementation of the law."
