EPA refocuses priorities
August 31, 2018
WASHINGTON (August 31, 2018) – Today Colin Woodall, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs for the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, released the following statement in response to the Environmental Protection Agency's transition from National Enforcement Initiatives to National Compliance Initiatives:
"Cattlemen and cattlewomen take their role as environmental stewards seriously. Now, rather than being the targets of continuous prioritized enforcement, they can finally operate on a level playing field. We are grateful that Acting Administrator Wheeler and his team have refocused the agency's priorities. This action clearly reflects the continued commitment beef producers make to protecting our nation's precious natural resources, and the commitment of this administration to ensuring that stakeholders and regulators work together to find solutions."
