The regulation - known as the Waters of the United States Rule and adopted by the Obama administration - expands the definition of waters subject to the jurisdiction of the EPA under the Clean Water Act.

"We're going to pay attention to process", he said.

"We are not going to have 'sue and settle.' We are not going to lead that agency in a way that regulates through regulation".

The agency said the amount could be covered through third parties such as surety bonds or self-insured corporate guarantees.

"Rule of law matters", he said. Sometimes, we think it's an academic or legal content. Pruitt also said he intends on working within the "rule of law", not making up laws on a whim. That information, which was released last week, was in connection wit the botched execution of Clayton Lockett and a related case involving the availability of certain lethal injection drugs in which Pruitt's office "misrepresented facts" - no surprise there.
