KLA opposes EPA'S e-reporting rule

Kansas Livestock Association and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association filed comments recently in opposition to the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed rule for National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Electronic Reporting. The rule would require owners of confined animal feeding operations to electronically file routine NPDES reports with EPA. Currently, those reports are submitted in paper form to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

KLA and NCBA’s concerns center on the lack of protection of personal information included in the reports and that the system, as proposed, could subject livestock producers to greater risk of domestic and foreign agroterrorism attacks. Furthermore, for states like Kansas that do not have an electronic reporting system in place, or the resources to immediately institute such a system, it could create an unfunded mandate on the state and could create duplicative reports that would require greater administrative expense for the industry.
