Sacramento, CA;  August 28, 2015: Monday morning — August 31 — Varney & Co on the Fox Business Network will cover Pacific Legal Foundation’s lawsuit over EPA’s attack on a Wyoming farmer and his stock pond.
Wyoming farmer Andy Johnson built a stock pond with state approval.  EPA is threatening him with astronomical fines (nearly $40,000 per day!) if he doesn’t remove it — even though it benefits the environment, and even though EPA has no jurisdiction over livestock ponds.  During the 14 months that he has tried to explain to EPA its error, his potential liability has already grown to over $16 million.
Varney & Co will interview PLF’s client Andy Johnson about the case.  The segment is scheduled to air on Monday, August 31, at 10:10 a.m. (EDT); 7:10 a.m. (PDT).
