From the Field is a bi-monthly column written by Mark Campbell, Farm Bureau Field Services Director for the Central District. He writes about Farm Bureau member benefits and County Farm Bureau activities.
I heard on the radio this morning of a quote, unknown author, about responsiveness of Congress. The person said “they will see the light when the heat is turned up”. The Waters of the U.S. is serious business and if we are serious about preventing its implementation, you need to contact Senators Warner and Kaine immediately. You need to encourage them to support S. 1140, Federal Water Quality Protection Act.
I won’t go into all of the details, but please take time to read the analysis of American Farm Bureau. It is very eye opening to the tricks of EPA and unfortunately disappointing to learn of an agenda driven government agency that instead of yielding to the wishes of the citizenry went on the offensive to override the people’s wishes. You can read the analysis here http://fbnews.fb.org/Templates/Article.aspx?id=39681&utm_source=June+23%2C+2015&utm_campaign=June+23%2C+2015&utm_medium=email.
More importantly, contact Senators Warner and Kaine to oppose Waters of the U.S. and support S. 1140.
Until next time,
