Louisiana Farmers Hail Trump 'Ditching' Water Rule

Louisiana farmers and agriculture advocates said President Trump's effort to rescind an Obama-era water regulation would remove the biggest regulatory threat to the industry. "It's as big a threat as we have ever had," Louisiana Farm Bureau President Ronnie Anderson said of the rule. "I don't think ag could survive it to be honest with you. It's huge for us if this can be rolled back."
