Kuhn says the bill would allow farmers to stop reporting penalties and emissions of ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and odor which he says come from controlled animal feeding operations.
He spoke out against the bill saying the chemicals that are given off do hurt the quality of life of those living near the operations.
