1.  RE:Efforts to Reduce the Regulatory Burden on Business – What is the real impact?

Thanks for sharing the National Review article.  I liked the analogy of applauding the Obama Administration's effort on regulations like you'd applaud a golfer for achieving a triple bogey in golf.

I've seen bits of information here and there regarding the costs of the regulation being imposed or proposed on all the various segments of the agriculture industry.  I think it would be a worthy effort to try to compile this information into one concise document.  Perhaps this already exists?

I would imagine the grand total is in the billions of dollars from just our industry alone.  From the National Review article, I guess EPA somehow considers this an economic stimulus.  I think most reasonable people considers this a drag on our economy and stalling economic growth.
