Statement by Steve Nelson, President, Regarding U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer Legislation on OSHA Fertilizer Regulations

LINCOLN, NEB. – “OSHA’s misguided and falsely predicated new regulations on anhydrous ammonia retail facilities must be put to a stop. This is clearly another example of a federal regulation that is entirely unneeded, unnecessary and unwarranted. We want to thank Sen. Fischer for introducing the Senate version of Congressman Adrian Smith’s (NE-3) FARM Act which will help prevent Nebraska’s farmers from being forced to pay thousands of dollars in increased fertilizer costs for no real benefit to public safety.”
