Rep. Robert Hurt Tours Palmyra Ranch

July 2, 2013

5th District Congressman Robert Hurt made a stop in our area on Tuesday as part of his tour along Route 15.

Hurt toured the Lazy S Ranch in Palmyra, seeking feedback from farmers and agriculturalists.

He says he wants to make it easy and affordable for them to comply with regulations, like the Clean Water Act.

"I believe that we need to make sure those rules are interpreted correctly. Currently there is an exemption for farmers under the Clean Water Act however we have heard instances where that exemption is not properly applied so we've introduced legislation last week that would make it a little bit easier."

Representative Hurt also visited the Fluvanna Farmers' Market
