Farm Bureau Urging Members to Tell EPA to Keep the Navigable Waters Protection Rule

Tue, 11 Jan 2022 06:08:58 EST

Farm Bureau Urging Members to Tell EPA to Keep the Navigable Waters Protection Rule American Farm Bureau successfully campaigned last year against changes to the stepped-up basis provision in estate tax law. Now, Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall asked members to put that same energy level into the Biden administration's proposed changes to the Trump Waters of the United States rule. The administration wants to go back to an earlier rule that Farm Bureau says will bring the heavy hand of the federal government onto farmers' lands. "We need that same energy and passion when it comes to WOTUS," Duvall said during an address at the group's annual convention. "It is critical that this administration understands that we shouldn't need a team of lawyers and consultants just to farm our land."

Courtney Briggs, a senior director of congressional relations, says, "Farm Bureau liked the Trump rule because it created a clear line between what's in and what's out."Listen to the audio on the Listen Bar below to hear about how the Biden Administration is proposing to grab more control over private lands by bringing back the so called "significant nexus " rule in their clean water proposal.

Farm Bureau is urging Farmers and Ranchers to send comments to the EPA before February 6. Click here to jump to the American Farm Bureau website to learn more about why they want the grassroots to communicate to the Adminsitration on the Clean Water Rule.
