Gov. Burgum is applauding the Trump administration's steps to roll back an Obama administration policy that expanded protections for some state streams, tributaries and wetlands.
U.S. News & World Report says the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers on Tuesday outlined a process for rescinding a 2015 regulation that defines which waterways are covered under the Clean Water Act.
The Obama policy protected more than half the nation's streams from pollution.
Mr. Burgum called that an "example of regulatory overreach."
