  • LaMalfa Passes Regulatory Relief Amendment for Farms, Ranches and Forestry

    Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) today announced passage of an amendment to the House Energy and Water Appropriations providing relief to farms, ranches and forestry work by ending excessive regulatory overreach. The Clean Water Act (CWA) exempts routine agricultural work, such as plowing, harvesting and the maintenance of drainage ditches, from permitting requirements. However, overzealous federal agencies had interpreted other portions of the Act to require cumbersome and expensive permits, which often prevented otherwise normal agricultural work. LaMalfa’s amendment eliminates funding for regulation of activities identified as exempt in the CWA and was adopted by voice vote.
