LINCOLN, NEB. – "OSHA's misguided and falsely predicated new regulations on anhydrous ammonia retail facilities must be put to a stop. This is clearly another example of a federal regulation that is entirely unneeded, unnecessary and unwarranted. We want to thank Sen. Fischer for introducing the Senate version of Congressman Adrian Smith's (NE-3) FARM Act which will help prevent Nebraska's farmers from being forced to pay thousands of dollars in increased fertilizer costs for no real benefit to public safety."

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 61,000 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.
