The Environmental Protection Agency’s Chesapeake Bay Blueprint is known in bureaucrat-speak as the region’s “total maximum daily load” or “TMDL.” The EPA calls this massive new regulation a “pollution diet” for the region, but its effect will be to starve American farmers and quash community development. A new AFBF website explains the details of this overreach by highlighting recent news clips and analysis, including:
- EPA Goes After Low-Income Farmers In Land Grab in The Federalist by Blake Hurst, president of Missouri Farm Bureau;
- The EPA’s Lawless Land Grab in the National Review by Rupert Darwall; and
- Farm Bureau Fights Federal Land Grab in Chesapeake Bay Region in the Heartland Institute by H. Sterling Burnett.
