Farmers Are Not Happy With Biden’s Waters Of USA Overreach

Here’s the extreme environuts in the Biden admin continuing the work of the extreme environuts of the Obama admin, not caring how much this will cause problems for regular Americans

Farmers slam Biden over latest eco regulation targeting businesses: ‘Federal overreach’

Organizations representing American farmers slammed a recent Biden administration regulation repeals a Trump-era action regarding how natural water sources in the U.S. are protected.

The groups argued that the rule would increase uncertainty and pose regulatory roadblocks for farmers. On Friday, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized the rule change, redefining which “waters of the United States” are federally protected under the Clean Water Act.

EPA Administrator Michael Regan said the regulation change “safeguards our nation’s waters, strengthens economic opportunity, and protects people’s health.” But critics of the move said it would lead to increased federal scrutiny of how farmers and other landowners treat water sources on their property such as ravines and creeks, creating additional costs.

This has been contentious since they tried to do this under the Obama admin, as it would make every pond, creek, stream, even temporary ones, a federal regulatory one. And it’s been working its way through the courts ever since, being a vast, massive federal over-reach

“AFBF is extremely disappointed in the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers’ new Waters of the United States Rule,” said Zippy Duvall, the president of the American Farm Bureau Federation. “Farmers and ranchers share the goal of protecting the nation’s waterways, but they deserve rules that don’t require a team of attorneys and consultants to identify ‘navigable waters’ on their land.”

And it will make it harder for farmers to do their jobs and increase the cost of food.

“The EPA’s latest rule on defining ‘waters of the United States’ is a statement of federal overreach that ignores states’ authority to regulate intrastate water quality and the Clean Water Act’s statutory mandate for cooperative federalism,” Ted McKinney, the president of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, said in a statement.

“In turn, although we recognize EPA’s attempt at clarifying through a roster of exemptions, its rule ignores the voices of nearly all in American agriculture who have long been seeking clarity on this issue, especially regarding the debate over what is and is not a navigable water.”

The feds want control of everything, and this rule was put out ahead of a Supreme Court decision on this, so, we’ll have to see what happens.

    I mean really, who really wants or needs clean water?
    And anyway, the Mississippi has basically almost stopped flowing so local authorities should be able to dump whatever they want into it,am I right?
    And water never floods out of any farmers pond, ever
