Farm Bureau Plans Lawsuit Against EPA

Mon, 10 Jan 2011 6:19:18 CST

Farm Bureau Plans Lawsuit Against EPA The battle cry sounded by the President of the American Farm Bureau at their 92nd annual meeting in snowy Atlanta- Stop the EPA. Bob Stallman outlined organizational efforts to protect America's farmers and ranchers from regulatory challenges that threaten to "downsize American agriculture, mothball productivity and outsource our farms."


Stallman announced AFBF will soon file suit against Environmental Protection Agency regulations aimed at the Chesapeake Bay, which include provisions that will strip power from the states and potentially affect every farm and ranch in the nation.


"EPA likes to call the new regulations a pollution diet, but this diet threatens to starve agriculture out of the entire 64,000 square-mile Chesapeake Bay watershed, and this new approach will not end with the bay. EPA has already revealed its plan to take similar action in other watersheds across the nation, including the Mississippi River watershed," Stallman said.


A litany of EPA regulations, from water and dust, to greenhouse gases and endangered species, has put agriculture in the crosshairs, at the very time agriculture's environmental footprint is shrinking and productivity is on the rise, he asserted.
