Robert Hurt Fights To Protect 5th District Farmers And Promotes The Bipartisan Farm Dust Bill When Questioned By Ranking Member Henry Waxman (D-CA): Last week, Robert testified before the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power in support of the Farm Dust Regulation Prevention Act (H.R. 1633). The bill, co-authored by Rep. Hurt, provides immediate relief to farmers and rural areas by preventing the EPA from imposing more stringent dust standards. H.R. 1633 is a part of the House’s overall jobs agenda. Question 1: Robert Hurt On The Commonsense Measures In The Farm Dust Bill: And I would like to address some of the concerns that were raised by Mr. Rush and Mr. Waxman that Section 3, it does allow for the federal government to come in, but under circumstances that I think any American would find very reasonable. And that is when…it is proven that there are substantial health risks, and after a cost-benefit analysis that this makes sense. And I think that from what I have heard from across my District – that’s exactly the kind of view that Americans and 5 th District Virginians would like to see going on here in Washington.

EPA to Regulate Dirt - Human Events -House members of the Energy and Commerce Committee bickered about the definition of dust in a hearing about a Republican bill to stop overreaching Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations.Democrats at the hearing on the Farm Dust Regulation Act of 2011 (HR 1633), sponsored by Rep. Kristi Noem (R.-S.D.), fired a number of vicious shots at the the bill, calling it merely a red herring. They claimed that the EPA doesn’t regulate dust at all, and that the wording of the bill was intended to strip the EPA’s power to regulate other destructive particulates, such as soot from urban factories. Republicans claimed that the bill would prevent future EPA dust regulation that is currently on the books from strangling farmers and businesses with red tape, and that the current regulations hurt farmers and increase the headache and cost of compliance.
