Senator Jim Inhofe Working to Provide Farmers Affected by CERCLA Relief - Tips Hat to Pruitt's EPA

Tue, 06 Mar 2018 12:33:11 CST

Senator Jim Inhofe Working to Provide Farmers Affected by CERCLA Relief - Tips Hat to Pruitt's EPA Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays visited with Oklahoma’s Senior Senator Jim Inhofe this week, to catch up on several issues currently playing out in Washington, DC right now. On that list, is an initiative being driven in part by Senator Inhofe himself, to provide some regulatory relief for farmers and ranchers facing new reporting requirements to the Environmental Protection Agency and the US Coast Guard. He spoke to Hays about this measure entitled the Farm Act, as well as the shake-up at EPA, led by Administrator Scott Pruitt, to change the agency’s culture of overreach.

“It would protect our farmers and ranchers and waive new federal reporting requirements for air emissions that are generated from animal waste,” Inhofe said, referring to the proposed Farm Act. “What this is doing is stopping the overreach of regulation that’s killing America.”

As Chairman of the Senate Environment & Public Works committee, Inhofe says the EPA was overregulating Americans during the Obama presidency to the point that our nation’s businesses and industries weren’t able to be productive at all. This culture, though, is coming to an end and is in fact being completely restructured - an effort being championed by Oklahoma’s own Scott Pruitt, who in his former position as the state’s Attorney General often butted heads with the EPA’s former administration. Recently, Pruitt highlighted some of the achievements his administration has accomplished so far in changing how the EPA operates and purging a myriad of overreaching regulations.

“They are doing things that are just totally turning over the overregulation that was killing the economy in America,” Inhofe said, warning listeners not to pay attention to the media’s bias. “He’s doing a good job. Scott Pruitt is changing things at the EPA, so overregulation is going to be a thing of the past.”
