On Thursday, the Supreme Court struck down an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rule enacted under Biden that gave them broad regulatory authority over bodies of water they previously did not have.
The court said that the EPA’s regulatory authority only extends to waters ‘with a continuous surface connection’ where the Biden administration attempted to enact rules that gave them far-reaching authority over wetlands, streams, and even small ponds under the Clean Water Act.
Democrats, including Democratic lawmakers were quick to attack the decision, which was unanimous and got support from the court’s three liberal justices.
Senator Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-Ny.) called it a ‘MAGA Supreme Court’ decision.
“This MAGA Supreme Court is continuing to erode our country’s environmental laws. Make no mistake—this ruling will mean more polluted water, and more destruction of wetlands. We’ll keep fighting to protect our waters.” He said on Twitter.
