Freedom for Farmers Act would abolish the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry

Here we go again with the back door dealings by using the mask of “Less Governmental Interference” as a way to remove necessary rules and regulations that protect the health of the American people. I AM a farmer, managing my own, not public, lands and livestock in the least damaging way and most healthy way possible. I am not afraid of necessary industry wide rules and regulations that inform me, help my management plans and level the playing field. This is not freedom for farmers, this is a back door way to allow any unscrupulous producers to run a shoddy business, just like the recent removal of animal abuser records from the USDA. I don’t get why anyone would want to move backwards in the progress that has been made in demanding healthy and sustainable animal husbandry be practiced or why anyone would support a politician that wants to do so.
