Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt met in Lincoln on Friday with Gov. Pete Ricketts, officials in his administration and members of a coalition opposed to an Obama administration water regulation designed to protect clean water.

Ricketts said Pruitt and the Trump administration "have kept their word and repealed the 2015 Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule that would have threatened future growth in Nebraska agriculture and manufacturing."
