As a drinker of ground water, fisherman, and all around person who cares about water quality and our environment, I strongly suport this legislation.  It makes sense to keep fertilizer on the land where it can grow  food.  Nitrogen and phosphorus in water systems cause problems that affect water quality as well as the ability of natural systems to funciton properly.  Please tighten the regulations surrounding chicken litter storage and use.
