CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Sen. Gardner this week sent a letter to Colorado Farm Bureau asking for its ideas on federal legislative priorities and regulatory reform ideas. The Senator is looking for feedback and ideas for both Congress, and to forward on to the Trump Administration.
“Whether it is regulations or legislation, it is important for the administration and Congress to understand the impact of their policies, and agriculture is no exception,” wrote Sen. Gardner in the letter.
CFB President Don Shawcroft wasted no time in taking up the call. “Colorado Farm Bureau is honored to be asked by Senator Gardner to bring together our members and share solutions on priorities for the 115th Congress,” said Shawcroft.
“We see the importance of Congress repealing EPA’s new Waters of the United State rule and a slate of other abusive regulations. We will recommend outcome based reforms of the Antiquities Act and the Endangered Species Act, as well as ideas about how we can better manage our forests…
“We will suggest how to speed the review of liquified natural gas export terminals; ways we can reform reimbursements for lawsuits against government agencies; how we can stop the practice of sue-and-settle tactics by radical environmental groups, the Department of the Interior, and the EPA; and ways we can speed federal review and approval of large water storage and infrastructure projects, just to name a few,” he said.
