The Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals is scheduled to consider the Clean Water rule tomorrow, December 8. The court will hear oral arguments over whether it has the authority to hear a challenge from industry groups and states to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Water Rule, or ‘Waters of the U.S.’ rule, otherwise known as WOTUS. According to the Hagstrom Report, the same court back in October placed a nationwide injunction on the rule until the court can decide whether or not it has jurisdiction to hear the case.
