E-M:/ April 11 Report of Subcom on Non-compliance with GAAMPS

Enviro-Mich message from anne.woiwode@sfsierra.sierraclub.org

 On April 11 at 8:30 a.m. the Subcommittee to Examine Non-Compliance with 
 Generally Accepted Agriculture Management Practices (GAAMPS) will make its 
 report to the full House Agriculture and Resource Management Committee.  
 GAAMPS are the voluntary standards referenced in the Right to Farm Act 
 which, when complied with, exempt farm operations from nuisance complaints 
 and, as of June 1, will determine what agricultural activities, including 
 confined animal feeding operations, local units of government are 
 preempted from regulating. 
 The meeting will be in room 308 of the House Office Building in downtown 
 Lansing.  I assume that written copies will be available at that time, and 
 perhaps the report will be made available on the web as well.  It is not 
 known at this time whether there will be any legislative recommendations 
 emerging from the report.
 If you can't attend, you may wish to contact the Subcommittee chairman, 
 Rep. Larry Julian at 517-373-0841 to ask that a copy of the report be sent 
 to you when completed.
