EPA Looks to Strengthen Regulations Against Farm Dust

What will the federal government try to regulate next? Once the EPA wants to clamp down on farm dust, then you know that there's not much left to regulate.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is considering a crackdown on farm dust, so senators have signed a letter addressing their concerns on the possible regulations.

The letter dated July 23 to the EPA states, "If approved, would establish the most stringent and unparalleled regulation of dust in our nation's history."
