Illinois Farm Bureau wants members to call the White House before 4 p.m. on Thursday, to urge President Barack Obama to “ditch the rule” defining “waters of the U.S.”
“If the drains and ditches that cross between, among and within farm fields and pastures are regulated as ‘navigable waters,’ the implications for farmers and ranchers will be disastrous,” according to the action request.
Calls to the White House, 202-456-1111, should be made between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CST Tuesday through Thursday.
Here is a suggested script of what to say:
