August 2017 Monthly Briefing

Feds Seek Input on Regulatory Reform

Alliance Developing Recommendations for Multiple Agencies

While much of the national media focus in recent months has been on Russian conspiracy, North Korean nuclear threats and Capitol Hill battles over Obamacare, federal agencies have been busy advancing President Trump’s promise to alleviate “unnecessary burdens placed on the American people.” Agencies whose actions impact Western water users – including the Bureau of Reclamation, Environmental Protection Agency, Fish and Wildlife Service and others – are seeking public input on how they can best live up to President Trump’s promise. The Family Farm Alliance has completed or is in the process of drafting formal comment letters for several federal agencies.
