Moran: Regulations Could Hurt KS Farmers

Kansas Senator Jerry Moran believes one of the greatest threats facing Kansas farmers is overregulation. That’s what Moran, a Republican from Hays, told a group gathered in Manhattan last night (THUR). He says the majority of people in Congress are from urban areas and may not know a lot about what goes on in rural areas of the country.

Several regulations are pending with the Environmental Protection Agency, including one proposed rule on greenhouse gas emissions. Moran says that could raise prices for diesel fuel and fertilizer, making it difficult for Kansas farmers to survive. Moran will be heading back to Washington DC next week, when the Senate returns from a spring break.
