Please Pass The Poultry Litter Regulation

1) Your Name: Thomas E. Boyd
2) Your Full Address: 875 W Penn Grant Rd, Willow Street, Pa. 17584
3) How you are connected to rivers affected by poultry in Virginia: I have fished many Virginia waterways with my kayak over the past 10 years. As an out-of-stater, I have always enjoyed the beauty of the surrounding landscape, mountains, and fishing opportunities that these waterways afforded me. As an out-of-stater, I have helped boast the economy of these areas by buying out-of state- freshwater fishing licenses, gasoline, camping on local camp grounds, and buying food at local restaurants and grocery stores. 
4) What you think about the pending regulation: It's about time! For all those who have dedicated their time and energy into the seeing this regulation through, kudos to you all. The valley has needed this pending regulation for quite some time now and it's a shame that a crisis had to come about before those in power sat up and listened to the environmental needs.
