EPA to Remove Clean Air Standards for Factory Farms

The EPA is accepting public comments until March 27, 2008 on its proposal to eliminate clean air standards for factory farms. Federal laws currently require industry of any type to report hazardous substances they are spewing into the atmosphere, but according to the EPA, factory farms, should no longer have to do that. The EPA's proposal doesn't even attempt to hide its reasoning behind this decision. Instead, it simply says these landmark exemptions should be made "to reduce the burden on the regulated community."

To paraphrase, the EPA proposal says factory farms should no longer be required to report the discharge of hazardous air pollutants, because it's too hard for factory farms to comply with the laws and because the government isn't going to do anything to violators anyway. Please sign a petition or, better yet, submit your own individual comments directly to the EPA Docket comments website here. The full docket can also be read here.
