NCBA Appreciates EPA Regulatory Relief Effort
WASHINGTON (October 30, 2018) – Today Kevin Kester, President of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, released the following statement in response to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler's announcement that the EPA will conduct a rulemaking related to the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA):
"NCBA appreciates Acting Administrator Wheeler’s effort to provide regulatory relief to America’s cattle producers. We are happy to see the EPA follow through on the commitment to conduct a rule making on EPCRA and will reiterate our call for common-sense. NCBA encourages its members to build relationships with their local first responders. Unlike the submission of needless paperwork, talking to responders about potential on-farm hazards can save lives. NCBA looks forward to submitting comments on the proposed rule."
