NPPC And Farm Bureau Suing EPA Over Private Information Releases

NPPC And Farm Bureau Suing EPA Over Private Information Releases

The National Pork Producers Council and American Farm Bureau Federation have filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Minnesota against EPA for releasing producer’s personal information. NPPC President and Minnesota producer Randy Spronk says they want sensitive private information protected.

Spronk says there is information that the public should be allowed to see but there is a definite dividing line between public and private that needs to be upheld.

NPPC and Farm Bureau are also asking for a restraining order to keep EPA from releasing producer information sought through theĀ Freedom of Information Act from enviromental groups.
