Just in from Washington


Cattle Excluded from Greenhouse Gas Regulations

Washington– Rep. Latham (R-IA) and Rep. Tiahrt (R-KS) added amendments to the FY-2010 Environmental Protection Agency bill that prohibited EPA from regulating the cattle for green house gas emissions.

Rep. Latham’s amendment prohibited EPA from requiring cattle operation to report Green House Gas emissions from manure management systems. Congressman Tiahrt’s amendment prohibits EPA from regulating GHG emission that results from livestock production under the Clean Air Act (Cow tax). The EPA spending bill has passed out of the House Appropriation Committee to the Floor.
