SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(KELO)- Attorney General Marty Jackley is celebrating a court victory dealing with the Waters of the United States rule.
Jackley was among two dozen Attorneys General who sued to stop the rule from taking effect.
Jackley calls the rule an overreach by the federal government that isn’t workable.
A judge granted a temporary injunction to prevent the rule from taking effect, so this is only a temporary victory.
Jackley says more work needs to be done to make it permanent.
He’s calling it a major victory for South Dakota and two dozen other states.
Jackley is celebrating a temporary injunction that halts the Waters of the United States rules from taking effect.
It would require federal approval for private landowners to utilize waterways on their own property.
Jackley says the top-down approach of the rule is heavy handed, and unnecessary.
The injunction means the judge hearing the case believes there’s a good chance the states will prevail in the dispute.
