EPA drones spy on farmers in Nebraska and Iowa | The Daily Caller
Much as I despise the EPA, I don't see any problem with this practice.
It's a monitoring and enforcement tool.
The EPA sued St. Louis sewer district causing the average monthly sewer bill to go up 700%. Now millions will take a huge monthly hit to their budget.
"Monitoring and enforcement" of what? I can't think of any regulation I would want the EPA using drones to enforce.
The Clean Water Act for one.
I thought you was one of dem dere deficit hawks. This is less expensive than paying people to do it. You should be all for that sort of thing.
Well people still fly it from the ground. But it's much cheaper then using a plane or helicopter.
The EPA, USDA, FDA & Monsanto have been spying on & suing farmers for over 30 years. Yes it sucks.
Industrial and agricultural compliance, for one.
The EPA piles regulations upon regulations because of chronic non-compliance.
Non-compliance is often the result of a lack of monitoring and enforcement due to limited agency resources.
These drones can expidite monitoring.
The EPA & Pipeline companies also fly along all the oil pipelines every day.
