Farm Regulatory Certainty Act
This bill amends the Resources Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 to specify that animal waste, manure, and fertilizer are excluded from the Act's requirements if the waste, manure, or fertilizer originates from or is utilized by an agricultural operation.
Citizen suits may not be brought under the Act against an agricultural operation if federal or state legal and enforcement actions are already underway.
