Crawford Troubled Over Release of Information from EPA to Environmental Groups

Public release of information collected by EPA unprecedented

WASHINGTON- Congressman Rick Crawford (R-AR), issued the following statement regarding recent reports that the Environmental Protection Agency released detailed and potentially private information of livestock producers and farm families from 30 different states, including those in Arkansas:

“Recent reports indicate that the EPA has released to environmental groups detailed and potentially private information about livestock producers and farm families in Arkansas and across the Nation. I have serious concerns about the potential threat that these actions pose to the privacy of American farm families, as well as the safety and security of our Nation’s food supply. This is yet another example of the EPA’s overreach into the lives of small businesses and the hardworking individuals in rural America.

As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Livestock, Rural Development, and Credit, I will investigate this matter thoroughly and work with my colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives to prevent these actions from happening again in the future.”

Congressman Rick Crawford represents Arkansas’s First Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives. Crawford serves on the Agriculture Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. On the Agriculture Committee, Crawford is Chairman of the Livestock, Rural Development and Credit Subcommittee. Congressman Crawford and his wife Stacy live in Jonesboro with their two children.
