Wednesday evening, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) and litigation partners filed a motion in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas asking the court to strike down the Biden administration’s Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule in light of the Supreme Court’s decision in Sackett v. EPA.

NCBA Chief Counsel Mary-Thomas Hart said, “A full rewrite of the Biden Administration’s WOTUS definition is the only path to comply with the Sackett decision.”

She noted that NCBA is seeking summary judgement in their lawsuit against the Biden WOTUS rule and urging the Southern District of Texas to strike the rule from the books.


And while some note the positive ruling in the Sackett v. EPA case, Hart explains why this motion was filed.

Hart said, “NCBA has been fighting against overreaching WOTUS rules for years and this is just the latest example of how NCBA fights on every front from Congress to the courtroom. We are proud to be the voice of America’s cattle producers in Washington.”
