EPA Holds Steady on Farm Dust Regulation

News Date: 10/18/2011

On Monday, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sent a letter to Congress saying they were not going to change the current standards for particulate matter (PM10), pertaining to dust particles created by farms, once it is sent to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for interagency review.  The EPA made this decision based on scientific record, input from their own scientists and advice from the Clean Air Science Advisory Committee.
