Senator Johanns joined other Republican senators in confronting EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, arguing against expansion of the Clean Water Act which could lead to the regulation of ponds and streams on farms. Johanns says Republicans expressed frustration with what he calls a long list of regulatory burdens against agriculture. Johanns says a proposed expansion of the Clean Water Act could cost farmers in both permit fees and fines.
