    Debate over the classification, protection, and management of forested wetlands has intensified in recent years. Federal agencies have classified US wetlands in various manners, leading to frequent protests by groups favoring more or less stringent criteria. In addition, wetland issues have faced an evolving scope of federal water pollution laws applying to wetland regulation; a unified federal wetland delineation manual whose implementation was opposed by the executive branch and some members of Congress; and introduction of bills to redefine wetlands.
