A request to support reform the federal government's process to create and enforce environmental regulations stirred some 11-hundred farmers into action.
Illinois Farm Bureau asked farmers to actively support a so-called "back to basics” effort by new federal Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt. I-F-B President Rich Guebert explains what it's about.
And as for Springfield, Guebert says farmers await action on a state budget just like many other interests throughout Illinois.
Guebert farms in Ellis Grove in Randolph County.
