South Dakota Farm Bureau President Says EPA Needs To Obey Court Ruling

South Dakota Farm Bureau President Says EPA Needs To Obey Court Ruling

A Louisiana Senator has written the Environmental Protection Agency calling on them to follow the recent directions from a federal district court. The ruling says EPA can’t require farmers to obtain Clean Water Act permits for agricultural storm water runoff.  South Dakota Farm Bureau President Scott Vanderwal agrees with the Senator and says EPA needs to stop their regulatory overreach and obey the law.

Vanderwal says this recent court decision involving a West Virginia grower also impacts growers across the country and has significance for Midwestern farmers. He says EPA needs to be reined in and the Court decision called for that.

Louisiana Senator David Vitter requested in his letter that EPA respond to his concerns by December 5.
