A request to support reform the federal government's process to create and enforce environmental regulations stirred some 1,100 farmers into action. Illinois Farm Bureau asked farmers to actively support a so-called "back to basics” effort by new federal Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt. IFB President Rich Guebert explains what it's about.



And as for Springfield, Guebert says farmers await action on a state budget just like many other interests throughout Illinois.



Guebert farms in Ellis Grove in Randolph County.
