Last week, the Senate failed to stop the Environmental Protection Agency's regulation of greenhouse gases, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation. AFBF President, Bob Stallman, released a statement.


"The American Farm Bureau is disappointed that the Senate failed to halt the Environmental Protection Agency's regulation of greenhouse gases by failing to approve S.J. Res. 26. This was one of the most important votes in the Senate this year affecting U.S. agriculture.


"Additional EPA regulation for farmers will likely mean higher food costs for consumers because of higher input and energy costs to grow our food and result in negative economic impacts on the agriculture sector."
