Duvall issues statment on Obama veto

The Environmental Protection Agency recently changed the definition of the water it may regulate under the Clean Water Act, unlawfully arrogating to itself the right to regulate land use. The president vetoed a Congressional Joint Resolution that would have rendered the rule inoperable.

Statement by American Farm Bureau Federation President Zipp Duvall:

“The president’s veto is salt in the wounds of farmers and ranchers. We remain mystified as to why he continues to support this fatally flawed rule. The Government Accountability Office found the rule was issued with the help of illegal ‘covert propaganda’ by EPA. Ninety-two members of Congress, 22 states, numerous cities and counties and dozens of industry groups have all stood up and said no to this rule. Courts have ordered the rule temporarily halted because of the harm it will cause. But, somehow, the president and the EPA just keep pushing. But we won’t stop either. We will not rest until this rule is gone.”
