Farm Bureau Urges Passage of Red Tape Reduction Act
Washington-In a recent letter, American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman urged House lawmakers to pass the Red Tape Reduction and Small Business Job Creation Act (H.R. 4078), which is scheduled for House floor consideration this week.
“Farmers and ranchers are increasingly concerned about the impact of federal regulations on their operations and the meager environmental benefits many of these regulations would achieve,” Stallman wrote. “They are now facing the prospect of increased federal permit obligations—even when applying pesticides in full conformity with federal requirements.”
