To the editor:
Please ask your senator to vote yes on SB1272 and SB1273.
These bills would require submittal of waste management plans by factory farms to Illinois Department of Agricutlure and an Illinois Environmental Protection Agency registration program, respectively. These bills will go a long way in regulating the massive amount of waste produced by Illinois’s factory farms. And they are needed to fix the flawed system and failures by both agencies to appropriately regulate their pollution.
They are common sense, long overdue bills where other states already have similar or stronger requirements. Thank you.
