Court will hear WOTUS rule challenges
On Feb. 22, the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a decision finding that the circuit court (and not the district court) is the proper venue for legal challenges to the WOTUS rule. This decision continues the nationwide stay of the WOTUS rule while legal challenges play out, providing relief to golf and numerous other industries otherwise impacted.

Call campaign: Help pass WOTUS disapproval resolution
On Jan. 13, the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to take up S.J. Res. 22, the Senate-led Congressional Review Act disapproval resolution on the Clean Water Rule (WOTUS). This resolution needs a simple majority to pass. We are asking you to contact your House member today and encourage him or her to vote "yes" on S.J. Res. 22.

GCSAA seeks Grassroots Ambassadors
GCSAA is taking its government relations efforts to the next level with GCSAA Grassroots Ambassadors. The goal is to match a member of GCSAA with each member of Congress, and to build strong relationships between them. The program will establish a network of committed volunteers to serve as the “go-to” people for lawmakers and their staff on golf course management issues.
