Two Lake Area lawmakers are saying no to the E.P.A. to define how the water is controlled in Missouri. Senator Mike Kehoe submitted a bill to the state’s senate that reads that the E.P.A. continues its assault on waters all over the US trying to now regulate everything including rainwater. His bill would contest that the water within our state is our state’s water and we have a right to maintain what is done or not done with the water. Meanwhile Representative Rocky Miller filed a bill last month assigned to the conversation and natural resources committee requesting clarity on the issue. The E.P.A. has proposed a rule that would call for seasonal and rain depending streams, wetlands near rivers and streams and other types of waters with connections downstream to become protected areas. Many legislators across the country believe this to be an overreach by the federal government.
