Proposed Clean Water Rule Will Hurt Small Businesses

American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented currently on the U.S. Little Business enterprise Administration Business office of Advocacy’s opinions to EPA pertaining to the affect of a new Waters of the U.S. Rule.

“We had been informed by the Biden administration that a new cleanse h2o rule would not have an impact on compact corporations, but feedback from the Little Business enterprise Administration provide even more proof that the declare is not legitimate. SBA confirmed what farmers and ranchers concluded as very well – the proposed rule results in government overreach and will have substantial financial effect on farms and other spouse and children firms.

“Farmers and ranchers share the purpose of protecting the methods we count on to grow foods for America’s families, but these policies really should be very clear and straightforward to understand. We experienced that with the Navigable Waters Security Rule. We urge EPA to listen to their colleagues at the Smaller Business enterprise Administration and the people who will be immediately impacted suspend your programs to create a new WOTUS rule.”
