EPA eyed oil and milk spills as the same hazard

April 2, 2011

EPA eyed oil and milk spills as the same hazard
By US Chamber of Commerce

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was considering regulating spilled milk the same as an oil spill as part of its spill prevention regulatory program. Milk contains a percentage of animal fat, which is a nonpetroleum oil. Dairy farmers would have been responsible for developing a spill prevention plan equivalent to an oil spill prevention plan. The EPA recently agreed to exempt milk spills from the rules.

This was debunked already by the independent Politifact.com: http://www.politifact.com/virginia/statements/2011/mar/11/morgan-griffith/morgan-griffith-says-epa-treats-milk-spills-same-w/

What they said:

“The ‘new ruling’ from the EPA, announced in 2009 and taking effect in a few weeks, actually excludes milk from the spill standards, giving dairy farmers fewer regulations to meet. That’s the exact opposite of what [U.S. Rep. H. Morgan] Griffith claims.”

“Griffith is dishing udder cow chips. We rate his statement False.”

Not true. This was debunked a while ago. In fact the new rules would make official the long-term actual policy that milk is NOT treated the same as petroleum.
