EPA and Army Corps Withdraws Proposal on Water Rules; USDA See Increase in Organic Products

The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has passed the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act of 2015 – which requires the EPA and Army Corps to withdraw its proposed Waters of the U.S. rule within 30-days. The bill also directs the agencies to develop a new proposed rule that must consider all of the comments received and reach consensus with state and local governments on defining Waters of the United States.

USDA announced the organic industry now has a total of 27,814 certified organic operations around the world – with 19,474 in the United States. USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service’s National Organic Program data shows the number of domestic certified organic operations increased by more than five-percent in the past year. As demand for organic products continues to soar – Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says more producers are entering the organic market. He says USDA tools and resources have created opportunities for organic farmers and more options for organic consumers.
