released a press release recently
voicing regret of a recent Senate action that failed to halt the Environmental
Protection Agency’s (EPA)
regulation of greenhouse gases.

“We are in agreement
with the American Farm Bureau Federation, which called this one of the most
important and disappointing votes in the Senate this year impacting U.S.
agriculture,” stated association president John McCoy.

“Additional EPA
regulation is likely to increase our raw material costs, which in turn will
have to be passed on to our customers, the very farmers who feed the world.
This vote will allow unelected bureaucrats at the EPA to establishing a de
facto new national energy policy via regulation under the Clean Air Act. By a
very slim majority, the U.S. Senate has cleared the path for the EPA to embark
on unprecedented regulation of the American economy.”
