Today's headline is about EPA's desire to tax ranchers for livestock emissions. This proposed "cow tax" will have a colossal impact on the agricultural industry. I urge you to read more on this issue, and read the following press release sent out by NCBA's Policy Affiliate Relations Manager, Elizabeth Bostdorff.
CALL TO ACTION: URGE EPA to NOT REGULATE GREENHOUSE GASES
Currently, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is collecting comments on an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding regulating Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) under the Clean Air Act.
WE NEED YOUR HELP to tell the EPA NOT to regulate Greenhouse Gases under the Clean Air Act since such regulation would be economically devastating to the entire U.S. economy, including the cattle industry.
There are two forms of the comments that you can submit to the EPA against this rule. See the Call to Action site at NCBA to access these forms. You can also submit your comments via email. Just send them to: a-and-rDocket@epa.gov and be sure to reference Docket ID# EPA-HQ-OAR-2008-0318 in the subject line.
PLEASE help us fight against regulation of greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act by sending a letter TODAY!
Deadline for letters is Friday, November 28th.
