Statement by Mark McHargue, President, regarding U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion on Sackett v. EPA

LINCOLN, NEB. – “Today is a good day for farmers, ranchers, and for private property rights. This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court issued their opinion on Sackett v EPA. Yet again, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must go back to the drawing board to write a new rule that protects water, but also respects the rights of states and private property owners, both foundational principles of our great nation.”

“As we’ve said time and again, Farm Bureau and the farm and ranch families we represent remain willing to help EPA craft a new rule that respects landowners, state regulatory authority, and our nation’s waters.”

The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service, and advocacy efforts. More than 55,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
