EPA to overturn clean water regulationsThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is expected to unveil a new proposal that would roll back major federal protections for thousands of U.S. waterways and wetlands.

The Trump administration is expected to rewrite a major national water rule imposed by former President Obama in 2015, The Associated Press reported Saturday.

The outlet obtained a set of White House talking points for the proposed new water rule, which indicate that the Trump administration is stripping federal protections for waterways.

The White House talking points reportedly argue that the "previous administration’s 2015 rule wasn’t about water quality," according to the AP.
