"Senate Votes To Overturn Biden Water Rule"

"The Senate on Wednesday afternoon approved a resolution against the Biden administration’s signature water policy, in a move all but guaranteed to spark the president’s second veto ever.

In a 53 to 43 roll call, the Senate moved to overturn the recently finalized waters of the United States, or WOTUS, rule. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chair Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) joined Republicans in supporting the measure.

“The Biden administration WOTUS rule tells states and individuals that the federal government knows best. It is true to form for this administration,” said Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), who has helped lead the Senate opposition to the regulation."
