Farm Bureau Reacts to Supreme Court Decision


New York Farm Bureau President David Fisher reacted to Thursday’s Supreme Court decision to cut back on the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to regulate wetlands under the Clean Water Act.

“New York Farm Bureau applauds the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Sackett vs. EPA to rein in extreme government overreach and the unlawful expansion of the Clean Water Act. We have long said that the definition of “Waters of the U.S.” should reflect what Congress established in legislation as it relates to navigable waters. This protection of private property rights should provide better clarity for farms. New York Farm Bureau continues to call for reasonable regulations that clearly define Waters of the U.S., protect our environment, and remove any subjective review of farmland by federal regulators that would reduce delays in time-sensitive farm work.”

New York Farm Bureau is the State’s largest agricultural lobbying/trade organization. Its members and the public know the organization as “The Voice of New York Agriculture.”
