Defense of Environment and Property Act of 2012

As a Senator, I have taken steps to rein in the EPA's war on private property. Thousands of property owners across America are facing aggressive action from the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers, with no legal means to fight back. While environmental protection is important, I believe that it must be balanced with the constitutional right of landowners to do what they please with their own property. That is why I introduced S.890, The Defense of Environment and Property Act of 2013. This bill will restore common sense to federal jurisdiction over navigable waters, and place reasonable limitations on an agency that has become dangerously out of control.

A House companion of the Defense of Environment and Property Act, H.R. 3377, has been introduced by Congressman Mac Thornberry, of Texas.

Several organizations have endorsed the Defense of Environment and Property Act of 2013, including:

  • National Mining Association
