NCBA Backs Legislation To Keep EPA From Releasing Private Information

 

National Cattlemen Beef Association officials are hailing legislation introduced in the Senate to keep EPA from releasing producer’s private information to activist groups.  NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Colin Woodall says it’s a shame they had to go the legislative route to convince EPA to stop this practice which is harming producers.

Woodall thinks the measure has a good chance of passing because of similar legislation already in the House.

Woodall was hoping after the first release of information to activist groups, EPA would have listened to cattle producers and not gone ahead with a second release. He says it’s now in the hands of lawmakers to correct the problem.
