Would You Like Some Pork, Pork?

La Vida Locavore has a great idea about a way to handle the attrocities brought on by factory farming operations.  Make them pay to fix them.  One of the earmarks that has been complained about recently is the $1.7 million directed at studying the smell on CAFOs (factory farms) to determine if they can be regulated under the clean air act.  From the post –

Still… about the latter of the two studies… is that really what we want? To allow hog CAFOs to carry on with their filthy business, using $1.8 million in federal funds to help them do it? Why can’t we make the hog CAFOs spend their own $1.8 million instead of your tax dollars and mine to find a way for them to clean up their acts? Why can’t we give that $1.8mil to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to enforce environmental laws when factory farms break them?
