Pollution program has flaw


A new federal program aimed at cutting pollution in rivers and lakes has some good ideas for encouraging farmers to adopt better land-use practices.

Unfortunately, the program as presented has a fatal flaw.

The project, led by the USDA and EPA, will be tested in Minnesota and Gov. Mark Dayton has signed a memorandum of understanding to develop rules for the program.
