New York Farm Bureau Statement on SCOTUS Decision in Sackett vs. EPA


The following may be attributed to New York Farm Bureau President David Fisher on Sackett vs. EPA decision:


“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.” New York Farm Bureau’s mission is “Supporting today’s agricultural needs and creating member opportunities for tomorrow through advocacy and education.”
