Please Pass The Poultry Litter Regulation

I fish the Shenandoah River regularly.  I've seen the fish kills first
hand and what it's done to the Shenandoah rivers big fish population.

I think that any regulation to slow the spreading of chicken litter on
fields would have a positive impact on the river.
At least make it illegal to spread the stuff within a certain distance
from the river.  We need some type of buffer to protect the river.
