The delegates approved a resolution calling for more congressional oversight of U.S. EPA's regulatory actions. They asked Congress to assess the impact that EPA regulations would have on agriculture and to consider legislation to stop EPA's regulation of greenhouse gases. Stallman said, "EPA's regulatory reach continues to metastasize at the expense of our ability to produce food, fiber and fuel, and EPA often does not recognize the contributions that farmers and ranchers have made to reduce soil loss and produce more with less land, water, nutrients and other inputs. We need more common sense and less negativity toward production agriculture in the enforcement of the nation's existing environmental statutes."
