A Potential Stop to Clean Water "Power Grab" via EPA Guidance?

The Congressional Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure announced today that H.R. 4965 was introduced to "prohibit the Obama Administration from finalizing or implementing the EPA and Corps Clean Water Act 'guidance' in order to significantly broaden the scope of federal jurisdiction under the Act."  The press release is good reading if your position is that USEPA and the Army Corps are illegally expanding federal power under the CWA without any public vetting of what is being called "de facto federal regulation."  This will be an interesting bill to follow.
