"A group of 24 Republican-led states is suing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to try to knock down a rule governing which waters get federal protections.
Late last year, the Biden administration issued a new rule about how the federal government determines which types of wetlands and streams can get its protections from pollution.
The protections would require businesses to obtain a permit for certain activities, such as construction, that could damage water quality.
The Biden rule was seen as a middle ground between Obama- and Trump-era rules that preceded it."
