Because of a lack of contact between Congress and the Environmental Protection Agency, Congressman Rodney Davis is supporting legislation that would eliminate funds from going to the Congressional Relations office of the EPA.

 

Congressman Davis indicates this stems from the EPAs inability to respond to requests for updates on the progress of implementations in the latest farm bill. He calls the agency 'rogue'.

 

 

According to Congressman Davis, the Congressional Relations offices are the ones that are the go between for local offices and Congress.

 

 

Congressman Davis says it took the EPA four hearings and two and a half years to finally respond. The cuts would total $4.2-million.
