WHAT'S THE BIG STINK?

J. Craig Williams points out that the Environmental Protection Agency's new agreement with animal-feeding operations gives the farms "immunity from Clean Air Act civil fines and penalties in exchange for the farms' agreement to submit air quality data and pay a one-time fine."

What do you think -- is this the fastest path to compliance by massive feed lots? Williams is open to comment here -- and the EPA is opening up a 30-day public comment period (see the bottom of this press release).
