WOTUS Comments Submitted by Oklahoma Cattlemen Call Rule Egregious Overreach by Feds

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 06:36:10 CST

WOTUS Comments Submitted by Oklahoma Cattlemen Call Rule Egregious Overreach by Feds The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association was one of hundreds, if not thousands of groups that submitted comments to the EPA regarding their proposed rule on the Waters of the United States. Those comments had to be into the federal government by midnight on Friday, November 14, 2014.

The next step of the process is for the EPA to sort through the hundreds of thousands of comments they received from the public on this rule that the cattle industry has called a massive land grab.

OCA Executive Vice President Michael Kelsey provided the Oklahoma Farm Report with a copy of their comments. You can read the entire set of comments from OCA by clicking on the PDF file link at the bottom of this story.

OCA did go on the record back in July at their annual meeting regarding WOTUS- here's what they said in a resolution aimed at the EPA: "the proposed rules are an egregious overreach by the federal government of the private property rights of all Oklahoma cattle producers." They added that "never has an issue so negatively stirred the grassroots food producing families of Oklahoma's beef cattle industry."
