New Clean Water Rule Provides Clarity, Certainty to Farmers and Ranchers

Newsroom / January 23, 2020

The following statement may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall.

“Farmers and ranchers care about clean water and preserving the land, which are essential to producing healthy food and fiber and ensuring future generations can do the same. That’s why we support the new clean water rule. It provides clarity and certainty, allowing farmers to understand water regulations without having to hire teams of consultants and lawyers. We appreciate the commitment of the agencies involved and this administration to crafting a new regulation that achieves important regulatory oversight while allowing farmers to farm. Clean water, clear rules.”
