A Republican state lawmaker in Wisconsin this week said that he is seeking to roll back rules on manure storage.

According to The Associated Press, officials with the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection are working on new restrictions on how close new and expanding farms can place manure to their neighbors’ property lines.

State Sen. Steve Nass (R) on Wednesday accused “DATCP bureaucrats” of not listening to farmers’ concerns about the new regulations. Nass vowed to roll back the regulations on storing manure.

They don’t have an actual way out since Turkey has cut off the roads and the exit routes that they might use and so now there is the question of will there be an airlift?
