American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on the formation of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

“AFBF appreciates Administrator Michael Regan for creating a new Office of Agriculture and Rural Affairs in EPA. Mr. Regan recognizes the important role farmers and ranchers play in preserving the natural resources they’ve been entrusted with.

“We look forward to working with Rod Snyder as he directs the new office, and we encourage him to collaborate with families in rural America to ensure their voices are heard and they are treated as partners.”
