Redford v. Trump on Wetlands

October 3, 2019

Robert Redford, the director of A River Runs Through It, recently chided the Trump administration for repealing the so-called Waters of the United States rule and proposing “a flimsy substitute that would leave half the nation’s wetlands and millions of miles of streams without the protection they need.” In Issues, a longtime environmental consultant examined the rule’s backstory, finding that “historical perspective points toward both the abiding importance of wetlands for the nation and the need for a policy framework that can assure stewardship of wetlands even in the face of changing political winds.”
