DNR Rules- Updates and Action Items

Posted: July 2, 2014 in Uncategorized

We only have until July 8th to make comments on the overreaching new Missouri DNR Nonpoint Pollution Draft Management Plan.

Here are a few things that need to be done to preserve private property rights in Missouri without this excessive EPA driven land control.

First, you need to get a copy of the New DNR plan, and the talking points done by Bill Gracy, and read my article about it hereTALKING POINTS at this link.

Second, you need to contact your State Representative and State Senator and ask them to tell the DNR to halt the plan because it is so overreaching and ramifications of this new plan are very difficult to determine, but it doesn’t look positive for private property owners at all!

Third, you need to contact your County Commissioners and ask them to send a quick letter to the DNR against this new plan. The talking points above and the article will help you in showing your cause for concern. Another point is that the duly elected local officials are largely left in the dark and out of the process in this new plan.

The extra credit action, is to call in to local talk radio shows and let people know about the plan and run through some of the talking points to illustrate the reasons for concern and give people this site to get more information. (prcnews.org)

Finally, as part of the administrative process, the DNR is required to answer questions put forth in comment periods. So ask questions and put in your comments on their plan by July 8th! Here is where you send your comments and questions:
