EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy spoke to the National Corn Growers Association’s Corn Congress this week in Washington D.C. on the agency’s recent regulatory changes and proposals. More than 300 farmers and staffers were on hand to hear McCarthy’s explanation of the RFS and WOTUS decisions, as well as her broader commitment to work with the agricultural industry. McCarthy was invited to address the summer Corn Congress session by NCGA President Chip Bowling, a farmer from Maryland. Bowling stated he is encouraged by the Administrator’s promise to continue engaging with NCGA. He says “We will hold her to that promise, and we hope to have thoughtful, productive conversations in the future.” At the same time, Bowling said NCGA will continue to use all legal means to protect the rights of our farmers.
