A sweeping plan to control water pollution in the Chesapeake Bay must be challenged because it will ruin regional agriculture and become the model for similar restrictions nationally, the head of the nation's largest farm lobbying group said Sunday.
"Clean Water Act jurisdiction over farmlands amounts to nothing less than federal veto power over a farmer's ability to farm," he said, citing essential farming activities such as pest and weed control.
But Bob Stallman, the Farm Bureau's president, said the proposed rule will create more uncertainty because it subjects farmers to potential regulation if water pools on their private land after a rainfall.
