Self-regulation by Michigan farmers
Michigan Governor, Rick Snyder signed a bill into law that will exempt certain farmers from fines for water pollution.

The Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP) is a voluntary program that helps farmers minimize pollution from their farms by teching them to identify and address risks such as improper pesticide or waste management.

Under the new law farmers that are certified participants in the programs will be excused from civil fines for unintentional water discharges.

Supports of the bill say that it provides incentive to get farmers to invest in addressing pollution risks, however, opponents say it violates the Clean Water Act.
