NCBA Backs House Committe Plan To Chop EPA Budget

National Cattlemen Beef Association members are supporting a House committee proposal to chop the budget for the Environmental Protection Agency. Included in the Appropriations Committee’s fiscal year 2014 plan is a $ 3 billion cut to the agency. NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Colin Woodall says the mood in Washington has changed so this type of proposal has a good chance of being heard.

Woodall also thinks there is good backing in the House and Senate from both parties for this type of budget cut.

The planned cut if it goes through would be a 34 percent reduction from EPA’s present budget level and also contains language barring development of greenhouse gas limits.
