Huelskamp praises initiative on regs

By Dave Bergmeier

The U.S. House of Representatives approved the Farmers Undertake Environmental Land Stewardship Act in an effort to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from enforcing regulations on farmers with smaller fuel tanks and who have no history of spills.

One of the co-sponsors was U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-KS, who had termed EPA’s regulation as overreach.

“The latest Washington regulatory scheme to regulate fuel storage tanks on small farms is not only impractical but also unnecessary,” Huelskamp stated in a press release issued from his office. “What’s worse, many states do not even have a single inspector who can certify that farmers are meeting the new requirements—making it nearly impossible to comply.”

The congressman said a consistent theme he hears from town hall meetings is about overregulation of farms.

“We need less control and fewer mandates from Washington, not more,” Huelskamp said.
