ASA First Vice President Impressed By EPA Head’s Visit


Late last week, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy met with ag leaders in Iowa at the State Fair.   Iowa farmer and American Soybean Association First Vice President Ray Gaesser says the new EPA leader wants to work with agriculture in achieving environmental goals.

Gaesser says McCarthy understands that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to agriculture’s compliance with environmental rules.

He was also encouraged at McCarthy’s support for renewable fuels.

Gaesser says McCarthy recognized that many farmers and ranchers have had a positive effect on the environment and are doing the right thing. She’s hoping that will not only continue but improve in the future.
