Nebraska Cattle Group Has Concerns With New EPA Chief

Nebraska Cattle Group Has Concerns With New EPA Chief

Nebraska Cattlemen’s Association has several concerns with the confirmation Thursday of Gina McCarthy as EPA administrator.   Cattlemen’s Director of Legal and Regulatory Affairs Kristen Hassebrook says McCarthy’s track record includes promoting harsh regulations and increasing the agency’s control.

Hassebrook says her group is also concerned at the never ending release of producers private information by EPA and is worried McCarthy will continue that.

She expects EPA to now move forward on several rules that have remained dormant while the agency was waiting for a full time leader.Hassebrook says the Clean Water Act Guidance document will likely get moved out of the Office of Management and Budget, the last step before finalizing a rule.
