In May, Iowa’s factory farm rules were opened up for a 5-year review. This was the Department of Natural Resources’s (DNR) and Environmental Protection Commission’s (EPC) opportunity to close loopholes within their factory farm permitting and enforcement authority.
DNR received 1,600 comments on the factory farm rules. Roughly 90% of the comments supported strengthening the rules, but instead of listening to the people, the DNR continued business-as-usual and listened to the industry.
TAKE ACTION! EPC to vote on DNR’s proposed rule changes on Tuesday, October 18. Click here.
This is our last chance to weigh in before the vote and demand DNR and EPC close the LLC loophole, hold factory farm corporations accountable, and protect our water. Join us at the CCI Office at 9 am Tuesday, October 18 to testify at the EPC meeting.
