Haag: public input on WOTUS is lacking

The president of the National Corn Growers Association says public input is lacking in the amended Waters of the United States rule.

Tom Haag says more time to review and comment could have provided additional clarity for landowners and now…

“We need to go back to the Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers to convince them what we’re doing right now is not the right way.”

Haag tells Brownfield he is optimistic there is a more durable definition of WOTUS.

“The Obama administration went hard on their rule, the Trump administration maybe eased up too much and maybe there’s somewhere in-between with an administration that will make farmers a lot happier.”

Brownfield interviewed Haag at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois.
