EPA Talks About New CAFO Rule

On July 11th the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) held a public meeting in Washington D.C. with EPA providing an overview of their proposed revisions to the agency’s Confined Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) regulatory rule.

If you plan on attending a regional EPA briefing we suggest the following: 1) provide context for your questions by commenting on the specific CAFO issues and concerns in your region; 2) share your comments with the media; 3) submit your comments to the EPA in writing (these are briefings, not public comment sessions); and 4) for detailed comments go to the CAFO rule contact John Crabtree, johnc@cfra.org at the Center for Rural Affairs.

The proposed rule and additional information can be reviewed at www.epa.gov/oecaagct/anafoidx.html#cafoguide.
