Iowa AG Writes Letter of Objection to EPA
DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller and 14 other state attorneys general are writing a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency objecting to a new rule.
The new rule narrows the farming activities that are exempt from the Clean Water Act. The group contends it improperly tries to narrow the scope of the phrase "normal farming" which includes activities such as upland soil and water and conservation practices, all found in the CWA act.
They also say the EPA did not give proper public notice or seek public comment before making the decision.
