House Bill 1494 - Weakening CFO Regulation
The final Committee Hearing was . It was continued from last week as several people who were against the bill did not have the opportunity to speak. They were given their time and then CAFO industry lobbyists were allowed to close the Hearing.
It makes sense to protect the water from pollution, protect the taxpayers from possible clean up expenses, and to protect those who are good CAFO owners. It is a serious concern that the industry was willing to lower the disclosure statement. But the bill passed out of Committee and is listed for second reading on Monday. Please contact your Rep and ask him to vote NO on this bill.
