The point I got from this article is that the EPA's power is already too far-reaching, and this will just make it worse. Now the EPA will be able to decide if the cattle feces that ends up in the slough is harmful. If you think I'm using sarcasm, you're wrong. Do some research on all the things the EPA has had regulatory authority over but not regulated, as well as all the things they haven't had authority over that they've tried to regulate. It's a bit like the IRS, overzealously overreaching.

Frank, bet you have wondered about the excess in chemicals now being used in Farming? Let me see, in the "old" days, you tilled the soil, planted the crop with some granular fertilizer. Then, you sprayed for weeds and every once in while sprayed for Hoppers. Then, take off the crop and start tilling again. Now, we see them spray roundup before they seed. Then, anhydrous fertilizer and also granular. Now, spray for weeds, and sometimes for fungus. So, we cannot wait to harvest, so they sometimes give it another shot of Roundup before harvest. Hmmm, but, if they come back with seeding winter wheat, they will give it another dose of Roundup before planting in September. So, does any of this build up in the soil and track into the water system? Sure would not want the EPA to check into that if I were a farmer.

Farm state leaders are reluctant to step in and do something about the fertilizers and ag chemicals washing into streams and aquifers, making them an unsafe source of water.

What a Pud. Hoven and the rest of his gaggle in Bismarck are scared to death that some responsible person will stop their polluting of the environment.
