Waters of the United States

On January 19, President Obama vetoed Senate Joint Resolution 22, Congress's attempt to nullify the Waters of the US (WOTUS) rule, using the Congressional Review Act (CRA).

On Thursday, opponents of the WOTUS rule attempted to override the President's veto. The effort did not garner the 60 votes needed, ending with a 52-40 vote in the Senate.
