Farmers are raising a stink about a possible law that could tax them for their animals’ gaseous nature.

“If they do impose the tax, it’s going to put a greater detriment on dairy farmers. It’s hard enough to sustain the dairy industry with all the regulations put on them,” said Laura Worden, livestock agent with the Gaston office of the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service.

Worden was not familiar with the possible tax, perhaps because it’s still up in the air.

The official document that has farmers fuming is an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking published by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The purpose of the notice was to solicit public comment about regulation of greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act.
The open forum closed Dec. 1.

“Now it’s up to the EPA to consider those comments,” said Paul Sherman, air and energy programs director with the N.C. Farm Bureau.
