It is no secret the relationship between the agriculture industry and the Environmental Protection Agency has at times been contentious, to say the least.
As a new Administrator for EPA has yet to be named, Associate Director of Legislative Affairs at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Kent Bacus says it doesn’t matter who is at the top of EPA – there are a lot of things already in motion.
“One of the big goals for this administration is climate change,” he says. “With that you also have a lot of the issues that are still out there like water regulations and air and dust regulations. Those are things that we are going to have to be sure that agriculture’s voice is heard.”
Otherwise, Bacus tells Brownfield, they will continue to plague the industry.
