EPA Regulations Hot Topic At Recent Toolshed Meetings

Over regulation by the Environmental Protection Agency was the hot topic at a recent gathering of central Illinois farmers in Oreana.


Congressman Rodney Davis came out for one of three tool shed meetings in Oreana earlier this week and says what he heard most was farmers concerns about the overbearing nature of the EPA.



Congressman Davis explains they have been unable to stop President Obama's approach with the EPA but indicates they've taken a couple measures to cut down on the overreach they're seeing.



While it has been difficult to find common ground with the President and the EPA over ag policy, Congressman Davis credits Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack for being a voice of reason.



Davis indicates there are still toolshed meetings set for Christian County and Jersey County before he goes back to Washington, DC next week.
