Yes, the EPA is trying at the behest of our President to suffocate small farmers and ranchers and having an undue effect on the recovery of our economic system.

Small Business Incentives Policy

To help small businesses comply with environmental regulations and achieve health, safety, and environmental health benefits, the Environmental Protection Agency has incentives for small businesses who evaluate their own operations for compliance, then voluntarily disclose and correct violations. This program is called the Small Business Incentives Policy and is intended to promote environmental compliance among small businesses by giving them special incentives to participate in compliance assistance programs or to conduct environmental audits, and then promptly correct violations.

Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR)

EPA is one of 12 federal agencies that participate in the SBIR program, enacted in 1982 to strengthen the role of small businesses in federal Research and Development, create jobs, and promote U.S. technical innovation. There are approximately 22 million small businesses in the United States that employ more than 50 percent of the private work force and develop most of the country's new technologies. To participate in SBIR, a small business must have fewer than 500 employees, and at least 51 percent of the business must be owned by U.S. citizens.

yeah...real hard on small farmers. Spray drift, dust regulations, methane limits ALL have been proven false. Even Fox News...the ACTUAL news portion of Faux News, admits this.

But let's not let facts and hysteria from a tin foil hatter get in the way of a good rumor mill.
