National Membership Call: Unpacking Supreme Court Decisions on Waters of the United States (WOTUS)
Thursday, June 1, 2023 | 3:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
On May 25, the U.S. Supreme Court released its decisions in two major cases impacting county governments. In Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency, a case revolving around the definition of the ‘waters of the United States’ or WOTUS, the Court‘s ruling for the petitioner narrows the scope of what kinds of waters the federal government can regulate under the Clean Water Act. In Tyler v. Hennepin County, the Court held that local governments are not entitled to keep surplus equity from the sale of tax-forfeited properties, a decision that will impact counties in at least 13 states. Join NACo for a membership call unpacking these rulings and their implications for county governments moving forward.
