Last week, a House Sub Committee approved legislation cutting EPA’s funding by nine percent. The Chairman noted there’s a great deal of concern over the number of regulatory actions taken by EPA in the absence of any legislation and without clear Congressional direction. South Dakota Farm Bureau President Scott Vanderwal agrees with the cut to stop the over reach of the agency.
Minnesota Farm Bureau President Kevin Paap says he hopes chopping the funding will get EPA to listen to Congress and work with them before going ahead with so many regulations.
Vanderwal says even if the House passes the funding cut, its unlikely the Senate will take it up as Chairman Harry Reid won’t let it get to the floor for debate.
