Ag Organizations Voice Support for USDA Review of Proposed EPA Rules

 

July 30 - The National Association of Wheat Growers and more than 20 other ag organizations wrote Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., recently, voicing support for his legislation that would require the United States Department of Agriculture review of Environmental Protection Agency proposals affecting agriculture, according to the NAWG's weekly e-newsletter.

The bill, H.R. 2776, would establish a formal review panel and ask USDA to conduct economic impact statements on EPA proposals including by seeking farmer and ag industry input. Citing examples related to the treatment of milk spills, release of farm operation information to the public and the ongoing debate about the definition of “waters of the United States,” the groups wrote that “it is quite clear the EPA does not fully understand the impact these types of policies have on the nation’s agricultural industry.” The full letter is available online at www.wheatworld.org/environmentalregulation.
