Talking "Sackett" to American Agri-Women

March 29, 2012 | By DAMIEN SCHIFF

This evening I’m speaking at the American Agri-Women’s 2012 Mid-Year conference in Nebraska City, Nebraska (the home of Arbor Day).  The focus of my presentation is Pacific Legal Foundation’s recent Supreme Court victory in Sackett v. EPA.  In addition to explaining the case’s background and the Court’s holding, I’ll offer some thoughts on how the decision will positively affect the U.S. agriculture industry.  Perhaps its most important impact will be giving farmers a chance to fight back against EPA regulatory excess when the agency charges a farmer with having illegally filled wetlands or otherwise violated the Clean Water Act.
