Bills Could Change Manure Management

DES MOINES, Iowa - Members of the Iowa Citizens of Community Improvements are lobbying lawmakers to kill a pair of bills. The group fears they would open a dangerous loophole in manure management laws.

HF 512 and SF 418 would allow some operators to opt-out of inspections and oversight by keeping some hogs from current management regulations.

Iowa CCI says the bills are lobby moves by the Association of Iowa Pork Producers. The group is currently the only supporter of the bill.
They also said the move would allow confinements with fewer than 1,250 hogs weighing more than 55 pounds to exclude some buildings from plans and compliance fee requirements.

Both bills have won committee approval and are eligible for floor debate.

The Gazette's James Lynch contributed to this report.
