New Trump and EPA Administrations a "Breath of Fresh Air" to Work with Says NCBA's Colin Woodall

New Trump and EPA Administrations a


Working to protect the environment with a common-sense approach and a willingness to listen - that’s what Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt brings to the table, according to Colin Woodall, vice president of government affairs for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. During the NCBA Summer Business Conference this week, he spoke with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays about his experience dealing with the new Trump administration. He says, “it’s been a breath of fresh air.”


Completely different attitude, when you look at just the overall willingness of this administration to come forward and ask what we want most of all and then follow up with actions that support our requests,” Woodall said. “All you have to do is look at EPA, for example, as the being the best situation.”


In particular, Woodall says the EPA’s action regarding the Waters of the US rule, now in the process of being repealed and replaced, is an actual level of leadership and competency that he says has not been seen in the agency for the better part of a decade now.


“We believe Administrator Pruitt is going to be much more willing to look at the impact of this rule on landowners,” he said, pointing out that Pruitt has already invited NCBA’s input on crafting the rule’s revision. “This is not about trying to back away on environmental regulation - he’s just trying to make sure the regulation actually works. Which is something we didn’t see in the last administration.”


Listen to Hays talk with Woodall about his experience so far, in dealing with the new Trump Administration on agricultural issues in the current political climate, on today’s Beef Buzz.
