Courtesy TSCRA – FORT WORTH, Texas — The Texas & Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association earlier this week joined the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and 47 other cattle organizations in submitting an amicus curiae brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Sackett v.

The case will answer the question of whether the Ninth Circuit Court set forth the proper test to determine whether wetlands are “waters of the United States” under the Clean Water Act. It will also clarify the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority under the Clean Water Act and have broad implications for the Biden administration’s efforts to redefine what water features can be federally regulated.
