  • The American Farm Bureau Federation is asking its members to join a grassroots campaign, Ditch the Rule.

    The campaign is targeted at the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Waters of the U.S. rule which was published in the Federal Register on Monday. Among other things, the proposed rule would expand federal control over land features such as agricultural land areas that are wet only during storms.

    If carried out, the Farm Bureau believes ordinary field work, fence construction or even planting could require a federal permit which would mean new regulations or prohibitions on routine farming practices and other land uses.

  • In celebration of Earth Day the USDA’s Rural Development announced nearly $387 million of financial support for 116 projects to improve water and wastewater services for rural Americans in 40 states and Puerto Rico.

    Funding is provided through USDA’s Water and Environmental Program.

    Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says having reliable, clean and safe water is essential for any community to thrive and grow.
