Farm Bureau anticipates regulatory reform in new congress

by staff writer

In early January, lawmakers are likely to consider legislation that would reform the rulemaking process for federal agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency. American Farm Bureau Federation Director of Environment and Energy Policy Paul Schlegel says recent EPA actions highlight the need for change.

He says EPA’s overreach and scare tactics need to be checked.

He says Congress has an opportunity to improve the rulemaking process in a way that promotes accountability and is fair.
