Unless something happens fast. We are at risk of having that national stay that was in place . Go away very soon and the 2015 rule would go into effect , and would regulate potentially countless landscape features on farms around the country .
Stein says a stay on the activation date of the 2015 rule would give the EPA time to reconsider and change the rule.
The current administration has an opportunity to decide whether to make a permanent change to the regulation. We’re hoping to still maintain status quo while the administration has a chance to go through a thoughtful process and come up with some rules that work .
The Environmental Protection Agency is also taking steps to delay the rule while the agency reconsider the regulations Stein says a parallel effort in the Texas Court is needed because each step by the agency is being attacked. Other courts .
There are other stakeholders out there , they’re fighting very hard to have the 2015 rule will go into effect.

They were gonna keep maintaining the best quality , the best product we have a , going to be able to , to beat the Australians were to beat the Brazilians and less . I mean that’s what it is . It’s competitive out there and so if we can maintain that we’re going to do very , very well but we have to keep that edge I keep focusing on that .
