Some ag groups continue to express disappointment in the Environmental Protection Agency’s final Waters of the U.S. rule.
The rule reverts back to its pre-2015 framework, and Missouri Farm Bureau President Garrett Hawkins says it’s bad news for farmers.
“It’s clearly a return to more uncertainty and more red tape for farmers and others who work the land,” he said. “That’s the frustration.”
He tells Brownfield the timing of the final rule was another concern.
