Rep. Frank Lucas (OK), Rep. Sam Graves (MO), and Rep. Doc Hastings (WA), co-chairs of the Rural America Solutions Group, will host a forum to discuss Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations and initiatives that are hindering job creation and economic expansion in America’s rural communities. The forum, entitled “The EPA’s Assault on Rural America: How New Regulations and Proposed Legislation are Stifling Job Creation and Economic Growth,” will take place tomorrow at 2 p.m. EST.
The Co-Chairs will lead a panel discussion on a range of EPA proposals and related legislation, including carbon dioxide restrictions, the Clean Water Act, farm dust regulations, hydraulic fracturing and more. Experts from across the country have been invited to Washington, D.C. to discuss how these EPA regulations are impacting the livelihoods of farmers, ranchers and small businesses throughout rural America.
