Rep. Jeff Wardlaw, R-Hermitage, speaks in favor of his bill on state animal-farm permits Tuesday. Michael Grappe (left), director of special projects at the Department of Environmental Quality, said banks and farmers need the “protection” the measure provides.

An Arkansas House committee approved with no dissent Tuesday a bill that would ensure limitations to what the public can comment on regarding state animal-farm permits that have already been issued.

I don't buy the argument that this is at the request of financial institutions. This bill is about protecting C&H and their continued ability to destroy the finest river in this state. Wait for the first big fish kill. They will trace it straight back to hog crap coming from that industrial hog operation.

Yes, silence the people and do everything you can to ruin tourism in Arkansas so one farm can put their $hit in the river.
