Opposition to Oklahoma Poultry Waste Bill

03/28/2024

Concern over poultry waste from CAFOs in Oklahoma

Oklahoma House Bill 4118 would remove prohibitions against discharge of poultry waste by registered poultry feeding operations into waterways in the state.  The bill was introduced in February but is now opposed by five Native American tribes who maintain that the proposed legislation would “threaten to undermine safe drinking water and a healthy environment across their tribal lands”.

 


Law shielding producers of poulttry waste generates opposition

Granting blanket immunity to existing integrators with a retroactive provision would undoubtedly benefit producers, but has serious implications for the future if inadequate control is exercised over waste.
