Representatives ask EPA to stop dust standard

U.S. Reps. Stephen Fincher, R-Tenn., Kristi Noem, R-S.D., and 99 other House lawmakers last week sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson, asking that EPA refrain from adopting a revised and more stringent dust standard.

U.S. Reps. Stephen Fincher, R-Tenn., Kristi Noem, R-S.D., and 99 other House lawmakers last week sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson, asking that EPA refrain from adopting a revised and more stringent dust standard.  Fincher and Noem argue that implementing this harsh dust standard could "decrease the ability of the agriculture community in the United States to meet the world's food needs as well as decrease productivity, increase food prices, and incur job losses in rural America."

The letter is available on the USA Rice Federation's website.
