Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a resolution that urges the Environmental Protection Agency to rescind rules that require dairy farmers to have oil spill prevention plans.

Highlights:
-Specifies that the federal Clean Water Act requirements to prevent oil spills were directed at petroleum-based oils, not milk and that the EPA's actions are a clear overreach and an example of misplaced priorities. -Specifies that the preparation and implementation of such plans would cost dairy farmers time and money with little environmental benefit. -Requires that copies of the resolution be transmitted to the Administer of the U.S. EPA, the President of the U.S. Senate, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.
