Clean Water Rule: Trump WOTUS Rewrite 'Could Get To Be Very, Very Messy'

"If President Trump tries to overhaul the contentious Clean Water Rule, he may find himself in much the same legal quagmire as his predecessor.

While the Trump administration has offered few details about what it might include in a revised rule, the president has signaled his intention to channel the late Justice Antonin Scalia's views on Clean Water Act jurisdiction.

Legal experts say that strategy will be problematic at best. And its fate, they say, may well hinge on whether Justice Anthony Kennedy is still on the Supreme Court when the rule inevitably splashes down there."
