Obama admin softens bid to strengthen Clean Water Act regulations

The Obama administration has pulled back its controversial effort to strengthen wetlands and waterways regulation, according to a draft policy to be released later today that would clarify jurisdiction of the Clean Water Act. Administration officials have called a news conference for later this afternoon to release the highly anticipated draft of a policy that officials say will nonetheless better protect the nation's wetlands and waterways from pollution. The so-called Clean Water Act guidance would redefine for both the public and federal regulators which waters and wetlands are subject to federal pollution protections.
