Peterson: Time to Clean Up EPA

Washington--House Agriculture Committee ranking member Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), has penned an op-ed on the committee’s website saying now is the time to clean up the Environmental Protection Agency.

“Farmers and ranchers are not happy with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). They see an agency that does not understand agriculture and imposes burdensome and confusing regulations,” Peterson wrote. “EPA may be the federal agency charged with enforcing the Clear Air and Clean Water Acts but when it comes to agriculture their policies are unclear and the process murky at best.”
