American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on the appointment of Rod Snyder as EPA agriculture advisor.
“AFBF congratulates Rod Snyder on his appointment as EPA’s agriculture advisor. There are several important issues facing agriculture that will require effective communication with EPA, including the new WOTUS rule, among other initiatives and regulations. As issues are deliberated within EPA, it is critical for the perspectives of farmers and ranchers to be represented and Rod will be that voice. Of course, it’s equally critical for EPA to engage directly with farmers and ranchers and I’m also confident Rod will be a strong advocate for such engagement and collaboration, as he has demonstrated in several roles. We look forward to continuing to work with him in this new capacity to ensure farmers and ranchers are heard at EPA.”
