Efforts to stop WOTUS, EPA’s waters of the United States rule, continue on numerous levels around the country. Last week the U.S. House passed a bill to prevent implementation of the rule by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers. Of course the Obama Administration has said that if the bill makes it as far as the White House it would more than likely be shot down in flames by the President. The EPA continues to run its “Ditch the Myth” series on its website in an effort to clarify the proposed rule, while the majority of ag groups and leaders continue to push that the EPA should rework the rule in such a manner that it allows for individual state input and adhere to boundaries already set by Congress. One of the major fears from the ag community is that the rule as is would severely disrupt and even reverse the successful voluntary conservation efforts by farmers around the nation. The American Farm Bureau Federation has created its own on-line campaign called “Ditch the Rule”. To find out more visit ditchtherule.fb.org.
