You've heard of POTUS and SCOTUS, now meet WOTUS.

That acronym means Waters Of The United States, and the Obama Administration made a rule identifying even small and frequently dry bodies of water as subject to federal jurisdiction. 

Several states and groups objected, and President Trump ordered the WOTUS rule rescinded. 

The Oregon Farm Bureau supports the move, Trout Unlimited opposes. 

A public comment period is open until August 28th.  Place your comments here.

We get perspective on the WOTUS issue from OFB president Barry Bushue and TU scientist Jack Williams.
