AFBF files challenge to EPA's endangerment finding

AFBF files challenge to EPA's endangerment finding

The American Farm Bureau Federation recently filed a legal challenge to the Environmental Protection Agency’s December finding that greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare.

The agency’s action constitutes the first step toward economy-wide regulation of greenhouse gases and is an effort to achieve through regulation what has failed to pass Congress and failed as well at the Copenhagen talks, AFBF President Bob Stallman noted in a statement.

“EPA regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from farms and ranches through the Clean Air Act could lead to costly and burdensome mandates on America’s food, fiber and renewable fuel producers. It is imperative that the U.S. Court of Appeals conduct a thorough review of the EPA’s endangerment finding,” Stallman said.
