Supreme Court rules that Biden administration abused Clean Water Act's powers

President Biden's 'Green agenda' hit a major snag when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency had abused the Clean Water Act by preventing an Idaho couple from constructing a home on their lake side property.

Michael and Chantell Sackett were told by the EPA that their property was considered a protected wetland and that they would be fined an insane $40,000 a day for any violations of the wetland.

The EPA justified this order using the 1972 Clean Water Act and stretching the definition of protected waters.

However, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito found that, "The wetlands on the Sackett property are distinguishable from any possibly covered waters." Alito also added that there must be a "continuous surface connection with that water, making it difficult to determine where the water ends and the wetland begins."

The Sackett's lawyer, Damien Schiff, celebrated the decision by saying the decision would "return the scope of the Clean Water Act to its original and proper limits. He also stated the decision was "a profound win for property rights and the constitutional separation of powers."

The liberal justices on the Supreme Court predictably lamented that this ruling would rein in the EPA's ability to combat climate change, and in a sense they are correct. The EPA has been restricted and can no longer make unjust decisions about how Americans can use their land.
