Court says no to EPA’s WOTUS rule

Good news, especially seeing how the rule was scheduled to take effect today! We get a break every now and then. — jtl, 419

A Handbook for Ranch ManagersAt the eleventh hour a federal court ordered an injunction blocking EPA’s onerous water rule.

EPA was defiant.

 Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual EPA bureaucrats declared they will only halt the rule in the 13 states that requested the injunction.

That means relief will only extend to Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewMissouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.

For now.

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsWhen Judge Ralph Erickson of the North Dakota District Court granted the injunction, he did so in the expectation that the argument by these states has a substantial chance of prevailing at trial.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)  The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)If they win, they might win for all of us.

They certainly deserve to.

Congress intended the federal government to have authority over “navigable” waters. EPA’s rule would enable it to grab control over virtually any water through a scheme that makes a mockery of congressional intent. Any water with a “nexus,” that might conceivably flow into navigable water, will be EPA’s to rule.

Under our Constitution, Congress makes the law.  When federal bureaucrats forget that, it is up the courts to restrain them.

Thanks to Judge Erickson for this wise decision.

Let’s hope this victory goes all the way.

For nature and people too,

Craig Rucker
Executive Director

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualPlanned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual. This is the ideal squeal to A Handbook for Ranch Managers.  Although the ecological principles remain the same, what was originally known as “The Savory Grazing Method” now answers to a multitude of different names: ranching for profit, holistic management, managed grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, etc. Land & Livestock International, Inc. uses “Restoration Grazing” under its “Managing the Ranch as a Business” program.” No mater what you call it, this summary and synopsis will guide you step by step through the process and teach you how to use it as it was originally intended. No more excuses for failing to complete your grazing plans.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
