US: Poultry groups welcome EPA's exemption
A joint statement was issued by the National Chicken
Council, National Turkey Federation, and US Poultry & Egg Association on
last week's announcement by the US Environmental Protection
"The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed to grant to poultry farmers
a narrowly tailored exemption from rules that would otherwise require them to
report 'emissions' that are a normal result of livestock and poultry operations.
This proposal saves around 40,000 poultry farmers unnecessary paperwork and
communications," according to the statement.
The EPA was additionally commended for acting with common sense.
