WATER POLICY: 15 GOP senators take issue with legal basis for CWA proposal
Annie Snider, E&E reporter
Published: Friday, April 4, 2014

Fifteen Senate Republicans in a letter yesterday to U.S. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy argued that the agency is using the wrong legal justification for a major water regulation proposed last week.

The lawmakers, led by Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, contended that the proposal would hurt the economy and could give federal regulators broader jurisdiction than they have today -- a point EPA has contested.

"We believe that this proposal will negatively impact economic growth by adding an additional layer of red tape to countless activities that are already sufficiently regulated by state and local governments," the senators wrote.

EPA's proposal would have nearly every small stream -- and the wetlands near it -- receive federal protections. The agency says the proposal is aimed at clarifying which streams, creeks, bogs and marshes qualify for protection under the Clean Water Act following two muddled Supreme Court decisions in 2001 and 2006.

In the latter case, Rapanos v. United States, the justices voted 5-4 to rein in federal jurisdiction, but Justice Anthony Kennedy, who sided with the majority, wrote his own opinion that set out a separate test for whether a water would be jurisdictional.

Kennedy's opinion required a stream, creek or wetland to have a "significant nexus" to the health of larger rivers and lakes in order to qualify for protection. By contrast, the majority opinion, written by Justice Antonin Scalia, would have rolled federal jurisdiction much further back, just to waters that were relatively permanent like rivers that flow year-round. Under his test, streams that flow only at certain times of year or in response to rainfall would not be covered.

In their letter to McCarthy, the GOP lawmakers argued that EPA's proposal should meet both tests in order to comply with the Supreme Court ruling.

"The rule continues to incorporate the Kennedy 'significant nexus' test that arose out of Rapanos v. United States ... without meaningfully addressing the Scalia test that also arose out of that ruling," they wrote. "We feel there is no justification for EPA's failure to respond in detail to the equally important interpretation put forth by Justice Scalia."

The senators also faulted EPA for releasing the rule proposal before the completion of a peer review of a scientific report related to the rulemaking.

Additionally, they requested that the agency extend the length of time that the public has to comment on the regulatory proposal. The comment period is currently set at 90 days once the rule gets published in the Federal Register. The lawmakers asked that it be extended to 180 days.

In addition to Toomey, signers of the letter are: David Vitter (La.), Marco Rubio (Fla.), James Risch (Idaho), Rand Paul (Ky.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Ted Cruz (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah), John Cornyn (Texas), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), Ron Johnson (Wis.), Tim Scott (S.C.) and Saxby Chambliss (Ga.).

Four years ago, a CBS News/New York Times poll found that 43 percent of Americans said that immigrants in the United States illegally should be able to stay and apply for citizenship. While, depending on the exactly phrasing of the question, subsequent polling has yielded some divergent results, two recent polls have found that support pathway to citizenship now is up to 68 or even 81 percent. But despite this clear support, a ThinkProgress review of candidate campaign websites finds that, among Republican Senate candidates, more are putting their opposition to “amnesty” front-and-center now than back then in the last two cycles.
Frank Sharry, founder and executive director of the pro-immigration reform group America’s Voice, told ThinkProgress that “‘amnesty’ became a dirty word in Republican circles under President George W. Bush in the 2000s.” Though Bush supported a comprehensive reform package that included a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, he said he opposed “amnesty” of the sort included in the 1986 reform signed by President Ronald Reagan.
Since that time, many opponents of immigration reform have used “amnesty” as a buzzword, aimed at making any path to citizenship sound like some sort of unfair reward for people who broke the law.
In 2010, President Barack Obama called on Democrats and Republicans to come together and pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill. That year, at least fourteen Republican Senate hopefuls in competitive races noted on their campaign sites that they would not support efforts to create a path to citizenship — which they decried as “amnesty” — for the estimated 11 million-plus undocumented people living in the United States. Seven of those candidates won the GOP nominations and four were elected to the Senate (Sens. John Boozman of Arkansas, Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania).
Two years later, immigration was a major point of contention between Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Obama took executive action to halt deportation of DREAM Act-eligible young adults brought to the United States as children and continued to advocate for a comprehensive immigration reform bill. Romney proposed that undocumented immigrants should be pushed toward “self-deportation,” and vowed to oppose granting “amnesty to those who have come here illegally.”
But just nine GOP candidates in seriously contested Senate races used Romney’s rhetoric on their campaign websites. Three of those candidates, Ted Cruz of Texas, Deb Fischer of Nebraska, and Dean Heller of Nevada were elected with anti-”amnesty” positions on their issues pages, while the rest lost in the primary or general. Two more — Reps. Denny Rehberg (R-MT) and Connie Mack IV (R-FL) included similar rhetoric on their office Congressional websites but not their campaign pages (both lost in the general election).
Last year, the United States Senate passed an immigration reform bill that included a path to citizenship, 68 to 32. Every Democrat and 14 Republicans voted for the bill, including Heller, who praised the bipartisan legislation as “a step in the right direction towards fixing an immigration system that is clearly broken.” Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has thus far refused to bring the Senate bill or similar legislation to a vote in the House of Representatives.
Despite the growing popular support, more than 25 Republican Senate hopefuls in competitive 2014 general elections or primaries are running against the reform bill, vowing not to support any legislation that includes “amnesty.” Three more prominent Senate candidates — Colorado Rep. Cory Gardner, Louisiana Rep. Bill Cassidy, and West Virginia Rep. Shelley Moore Capito — have similar statements on their Congressional sites. Unsuccessful GOP New Jersey Senate nominee Steve Lonegan, who ran in the 2013 Senate special election, also noted in the issues section of his campaign site that he “opposes proposals to give amnesty and eventually citizenship to as many as eleven million illegal aliens.”
Sharry warned against reading too much into the rhetoric. “Some [Republicans who say they oppose 'amnesty,'] are hard liners who oppose anything short of driving undocumented immigrants out of the country, and some are supporters of a broad overhaul that includes either an eventual path to citizenship or a path to legal status.”
But the fact that so many candidates are using the term “amnesty” at all is a sign that these GOP candidates are playing more to the right-wing base than the broader public, according to Center for American Progress director of immigration policy Marshall Fitz. He told ThinkProgress that “the GOP primary season has created an even stronger rightward lurch than usual these last several cycles.” Anti-reform posturing, he believes “continues to be red meat for them,” despite the strong public support for a comprehensive reform bill. Fitz added that the candidates’ pandering to that base is “obviously shortsighted and it is also unnecessary,” as a recent poll showed supporting reform would not depress GOP turnout.

Rape of soldiers by their fellow soldiers needs to end, and this will help. Way to go Senators Claire McCaskill, Kelly Ayotte, and Deb Fischer! And thanks to all the good people in the Senate who voted for this.

"Under the Victims Protection Act, the "good soldier" defense for service members accused of sexual assault would be banned under most circumstances, and rape victims will be allowed formal input in whether their case is tried in military or civilian court. Other provisions include: allowing sexual assault survivors to challenge their discharge or separation from service, strengthening the role of the prosecutor in advising commanders on going to court-martial, boosting accountability of commanders for addressing sexual assault & setting appropriate command climate, and extending protections to the Military Service Academies."
