This concerns the EPA's agenda to rewrite Federal law giving itself land use controls over virtually everywhere in the name of "navigable waters".

"This week, I reintroduced the Defense of Environment and Property Act of 2015. https://www.paul.senate.gov/imo/media/do... This legislation will bring common sense back to federal water policy by redefining 'navigable waters,' exclude ephemeral or intermittent streams from federal jurisdiction, and restrain the powers that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers hold over American landowners."

"Every year, thousands of property owners across America fall victim to the EPA and Army Corps of Engineer's bullying tactics.

The time has come to bring common sense back to the federal jurisdiction over navigable waters and place necessary limitations on out-of-control government agencies."

      The main link in the heading works. It goes to his Senate press release. The quote is from the email he sent. The first link in that goes to the legislation. The second link at the end is broken with a 404 but originally went to the same Senate Press Release. If you select the link in the heading you won't be missing anything.
