A good backgrounder on the Supreme Court Sackett v. EPA decision

Wrote about it when the decision was published.  9-0 too.
From the Media Research Center:

Farmers Cheer SCOTUS WOTUS Decision Returning Property Rights to Landowners from Biden’s Clutches
The nation’s farmers are cheering Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling that American citizens, not the Biden Administration, have the right to manage the water on their property.

In 2014, the Obama Administration concocted and issued the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, greatly expanding the federal government’s claim to control of water in the U.S. - including on private property - under the guise of an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initiative. The rule was repealed by President Donald Trump, but reinstated last year by President Joe Biden.

In Thursday’s Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency decision, the Supreme Court issued a unanimous decision that the EPA can’t prohibit Idaho residents Michael and Chantell Sackett from building a home on their property near a wetland.

Pure overreach by the people of the EPA and they got their pee-pee's slapped hard for it.   Good.

I am all in favor of maintaining a clean environment but this agency went overboard  at every occasion.  Time to defund them by 80%.  Let them operate on a shoe-string budget and do what is really needed.  We are paying for these morons. Move their headquarters out of DC too - someplace like Iowa or Kansas would be perfect. Away from the levers of power and closer to their locus of operations.
