AMERICAN FARM BUREAU FEDERATION, et al., v. U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY; MICHAEL S. REGAN; U.S. CORPS OF ENGINEERS; et al.
The State of Texas and industry groups including the American Farm Bureau Federation have filed separate lawsuits asking the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas to enjoin the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers' recently finalized "waters of the United States" rule, arguing it expands the government's jurisdiction beyond what the Clean Water Act allows.
