South Dakota Farm Bureau President Scott VanderWal says the new Biden Administration will likely take a different approach on environmental issues, including another whack at the Waters of the United States rule. “Another thing we started working on is changing some of the ways NRCS works as far as Swampbuster and wetlands determinations. That’s a huge issue for South Dakota, North Dakota and parts of Minnesota and there’s some question marks on where that will go.” VanderWal, who is the AFBF vice president, is keeping an eye on the changes in the administration. “I think President-elect Biden is pretty moderate, but he’s getting pushed from people on the far left and they have ideas like the Green New Deal which would be bad for agriculture.”
