Here goes the EPA after no other than our food sources the farmers of America. This would cost small farmers to much and many would have to retire to their rocking chairs on the front porch.

EPA to Crack Down on Farm Dust

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is considering a crackdown on farm dust, so senators have signed a letter addressing their concerns on the possible regulations.

The letter dated July 23 to the EPA states, “If approved, would establish the most stringent and unparalleled regulation of dust in our nation’s history.” It further states, “We respect efforts for a clean and healthy environment, but not at the expense of common sense. These identified levels will be extremely burdensome for farmers and livestock producers to attain. Whether its livestock kicking up dust, soybeans being combined on a dry day in the fall, or driving a car down the gravel road, dust is a naturally occurring event.”

Read the letter to EPA signed by 21 senators including Jim Inhofe and Tom Coburn

  1. This is crazy, it seems to me that someone wants to cripple the economy,
    drive the farmers out of business, and import our food from other places.
    Many other countries do not have the good standards necessary for the production of healthy foods.
    When will this madness end?
    What would be the difference in US dust on a farm road compared to dust in another country?
    Who is making these decisions?

  2. Lisa Jackson a Obama appointee is the head of EPA that makes alot of radical rules! Yes Obama and Lisa Jackson is the ones making these bad decisions. I don’t know how a farmer can not stir up dust while plowing their fields…can you see a 10 row plow at work? The field has to be dry and not wet to plow!
