MEDIA STATEMENT

In response to the announcement that the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers formally propose the withdrawal of the Waters of the U.S. Rule in the Federal Register, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:

“This is a big win for our community, especially local developers and property owners. WOTUS was a major overreach by the Obama administration which impeded job creation and economic development. This withdrawal will foster future economic growth by eliminating excessive rules and burdensome regulation. We applaud the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corp of Engineers for their common-sense approach and leadership on this matter.”
