Florida GA Bondi, Commissioner of Agriculture Putnam, affected industries join together to fight EPA water rules

Florida GA Bondi, Commissioner of Agriculture Putnam, affected industries join together to fight EPA water rules

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (Pic via myfloridalegal.com) In a Monday court filing, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam, Attorney General Pam Bondi and a slew of industry representatives filed their opposition to EPA-mandated water pollution standards for the state. Arguing that “federal intervention was and remains unnecessary,” they ask the court to invalidate the January 2009 determination that required that the standards be implemented. That determination followed litigation brought on by Florida environmental groups that alleged the state wasn’t meeting the requirements of the Clean Water Act. Pollution brought on by failing septic tanks, home fertilizers, utility companies and agricultural interests often leads to large-scale algal blooms and fish kills — occurrences that wouldn’t be so frequent, say some, if Florida had stricter water pollution rules.
