WMC Submits Comments to the Natural Resources Board Opposing Aquatic Plant Management Rule

WMC and a coalition that includes small businesses, lake associations, homeowners, trade associations and others strongly urges the Natural Resources Board to reject WY-29-19, a rule that implements burdensome aquatic plant management regulations, and instead return the rule to the DNR. The Natural Resources Board should reject the rule because the public is overwhelming opposed to it, the rulemaking of this order was unlawful, the process was not transparent to the public and the rule creates unnecessary regulations.

Overall the rule creates burdensome new requirements for small businesses and waterfront property owners for the treatment of lakes and ponds. WMC utilized available studies and estimated $123.7 million annual compliance costs due to reduced property value and reduced economic activity from unmanaged lakes.
