Nebraska Farm Bureau Backs Plan To Cut EPA Budget

Nebraska Farm Bureau Backs Plan To Cut EPA Budget

l

The House Appropriations Committee’s fiscal year 2014 spending plan calls for a $ 3 Billion cut to the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget. Nebraska Farm Bureau backs the committee’s proposal.  National Affairs Coordinator Jordan Dux says it’s the next step in trying to deal with an unresponsive agency that is running rampant with over regulation and not willing to work with producers.

Dux says there are a myriad of regulations EPA’s been trying to ram through including spill prevention and counter control measures for fuel storage on ag operations, confined animal feedlot fly overs and unwillingness to stop releasing producer’s private information to activist groups.

Dux says because EPA won’t respond to producers concerns the only step that can be taken is to curtail their spending ability.
