When Congress actually gets an opportunity to pass legislation that will help reduce gas production from farms, Congress gives waivers to the factory farms -- corporate entities that show huge profits and have a huge political lobby. Nevertheless, I bet Congress will stick it to the small family farm with ridiculous taxes, licenses and regulatory fees while the factory farms will continue to rake in huge profits.
...Yet, yesterday the House Appropriations Committee undermined this progressive proposed regulation by passing the 2010 Interior and Environment spending bill. An amendment in the bill will prevent the EPA from requiring factory farms to report their GHG emissions—a move that represents a blatant handout to large factory farms.
