"Environment is very, very important, but sometimes you can get over zealous in your approach. And all of a sudden what used to be navigable, now turns into anything that could lead to navigable waters. That's a terrible overreach and a big land grab by the government," says U.S. Congressman Billy Long of the 7th district in Missouri.
The Clean Water Rule will be effective 60 days after publication in the Federal Register, which is the government's daily journal.
