The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has voted to remove language from a proposal that would have set a requirement for farmers and ranchers to report greenhouse gas emissions. The SEC has been working on regulations that would mandate public companies to report emissions, including farming operations. Mary-Beth Hart, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association chief council says the proposal was a mess.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data says cattle methane emissions account for just 2% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Agriculture groups voiced concerns and sent messages and lobbyists to D.C. to oppose the language. Hart says that once SEC heard the pushback, they “pretty quickly reversed their proposal.”
