Letter: What’s Kitchens position on CAFOs?

An open letter to Rep. Joel Kitchens: I was hoping to hear by now a public statement on your position regarding more cows and CAFO expansions, particularly in the highly contaminated regions on karst, such as the Town of Lincoln. I recently read that you were “thrilled that the Clean Water Access Bill was signed into law.” Your enthusiasm is not shared by disenfranchised residents, some with limited income, who find the costs associated with addressing water contamination that occurred through no fault of their own – clean water literally taken from their homestead due to agricultural waste. No,...
