Will EPA Require Permits for Grain Dryers?

first_img Facebook Twitter Will EPA Require Permits for Grain Dryers? On his first day in office, Governor Pence declared a moratorium on new state regulations. Last week Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann reaffirmed that stand against new regulations in her remarks before the AgriInsistue’s Leadership Luncheon.  Newly appointed ISDA director Ted McKinney, who chaired a regulatory review commission during the Daniels administration, said he felt there may be more work to do in streamlining and eliminating duplicative and overlapping state regulations that involve agriculture. In the past, it has been large livestock farms that have been the focus of permitting, but now large engines and grain handling and grain drying systems may be targeted for permits, “The capacity of grain dryers would make them fall under some permitting requirement.” He added, however, that as a practical measure they should be small enough that they would not need a permit, “We are working with EPA and state regulators to try and keep them exempt.”   By Gary Truitt – Dec 8, 2013 Home News Feed Will EPA Require Permits for Grain Dryers? The EPA is taking a closer look at farming operations and may consider requiring permits for grain dryers. Bernie Paul is an expert in Clean Air Act regulations and recently told a meeting of Indiana corn and soybean farmers that both the EPA and IDEM are beginning to take a closer look at the air emissions from grain farm operations, “They are beginning to understand agriculture and that makes it a more attractive sector for regulation.” Will EPA Require Permits for Grain Dryers? Previous articleASA Announces 2014 Officers and Committee AssignmentsNext articleA Different Vision of Agriculture Gary Truitt SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Paul told HAT that he and farm groups are working with Indiana regulators to keep most farms exempt from permits. Even if some are required, they would not be as cumbersome as those required for livestock farms, “They would likely be pretty simple without a lot of record keeping.” He said the key is for agriculture to work with these regulators to help them understand what goes on in a farming operation. “The staff and leadership at the Indiana Department of Environmental Management have been very cooperative to make sure things work from a technical standpoint and from a regularity standpoint,” Paul said. He added the last thing IDEM wants is a lot of new regulations being unleashed on farmers.last_img read more

Journalists repeatedly attacked in Macedonian political crisis

It won the largest bloc of parliamentary seats in large December’s elections but not an absolute majority.Ten days ago, VMRO-DPMNE called on its supporters to take to the streets to prevent the opposition social democratic party (SDSM) from forming a government in alliance with parties that represent Macedonia’s Albanian minority. Such a coalition would threaten Macedonia’s unity, the nationalist party said.A1 TV journalists Aleksandar Todevski and Vladimir Zhelchevski were attacked by five demonstrators while covering a protest against the formation of an SDSM-led coalition on 28 February. Their equipment was smashed and both had to be hospitalized with concussion. Neither has so far been able to return to work.Other journalists say they have often been the targets of intimidatory acts and insults that are being filmed and posted on social networks by the perpetrators – small groups egged on by VMRO-DPMNE.Ana Patrusheva of the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) said her personal details were posted on Twitter, while NovaTV journalist Borjan Jovanovski said he had been insulted and spat on.The lack of an imminent solution to the political crisis and the virulence of the statements being made by some party leaders suggest that the attacks will continue and could become even more frequent.Fearing a new threat to Balkan stability, several European Union leaders have urged Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov to act quickly to resolve the crisis.“In this tense context, we call on all politicians to act with restraint and to avoid an escalation in violence,” said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of RSF’s EU-Balkan desk. “We also ask the authorities to guarantee the safety of journalists, so that they are able to work properly.”Macedonia is ranked 118th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Courts Expected To Assume Role Of A Parent Where A Litigant Is Unable To Prosecute Or Defend His Own Case Properly: Punjab & Haryana High Court

first_imgNews UpdatesCourts Expected To Assume Role Of A Parent Where A Litigant Is Unable To Prosecute Or Defend His Own Case Properly: Punjab & Haryana High Court LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK6 May 2021 8:56 PMShare This – xThe Punjab and Haryana High Court has held that Presiding Judges of the Courts are expected to assume the role of a parent in order to protect the interest of the persons, who are legally or otherwise unable to act or defend on their own behalf in the litigation. A Single Bench of Justice Anil Kshetarpal observed that whenever a Court notices a party to the litigation is unable to properly prosecute or defend his own case because of legal disability or poverty or illiteracy, such Court is expected to assume the role of a parent to do complete justice.Advertisement The order states, “Courts are expected to act as parens patriae, which means that the Presiding Judges of the Courts are expected to assume the role of a parent in order to protect the interest of the persons, who are legally or otherwise unable to act or defend on their own behalf in the litigation.” The remarks were made while lauding an Appellate Court that restrained the Petitioner herein from alienating the property of a mentally retarded man, whom she had married allegedly to grab his property.Advertisement The High Court observed that the Presiding Judge of the Appellate Court, by a well-reasoned judgment, very ably discharged the aforesaid function of a parens patriae. Background One Sarjeet Kaur, married to Jaswant Singh for 22 years, was stated to have staged a divorce in order to marry her husband’s brother, Raghbir Singh, a mentally retarded man, solely to usurp his property. As per the facts recorded by the Court, Sarjeet filed a petition under Section 8 of the Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act, 1956 as the next friend of her new husband Raghbir and obtained permission to sell his entire agricultural land.Advertisement Advertisement Following this, Raghbir and his other two brothers filed a suit for declaration with a consequential relief of permanent injunction against Sarjeet Kaur and her former husband. It was alleged that the two played a fraud on Court with an aim to usurp Raghbir’s property. The Trial Court did not grant the relief of temporary injunction, however, the First Appellate Court reversed the order and granted interim relief in favour of Raghbir.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement The instant revision petition impugned the Appellate Court’s order on the below mentioned grounds, all of which were rejected by the High Court: 1. The first contention of the Petitioner was with respect to the maintainability of the declaratory suit on the ground that an application for setting aside the ex parte order passed in the petition under Section 8 of the 1956 Act was maintainable. The Court held that proceedings under Section 8 of the 1956 Act were itself not maintainable because the aforesaid proceedings are maintainable only on behalf of a minor and not with respect to a person of unsound mind. It further observed that the suit seeking declaration was filed claiming that the proceedings under Section 8 of the 1956 Act were the result of fraud. In such a situation, the Court is entitled to set aside such an order/judgment in any proceedings including any collateral proceedings. 2. The second contention of the Petitioner was that she got married with Raghbir in order to look after his person and property. The Court found the case set up by the Petitioner to be “strange” and “unpalatable” inasmuch as the Petitioner claimed that she got divorce from Raghbir’s brother by mutual consent after 22 years of marriage, when their children had also got married, as she could not continue to live with Jaswant Singh. However, within a period of 12 days, on the request of Raghbir’s other two brothers, she married Raghbir. “The facts speak for themselves and create a big question mark on the genuineness of the case set up by the petitioner and therefore, need no further deliberations,” the High Court observed. 3. The Petitioner contended that nothing was placed on record to describe the extent of Raghbir’s mental disorder. The High Court observed that the Raghbir’s brothers had produced on record a certificate issued by the office of the Chief Medical Officer, showing that Raghbir is mentally retarded to the extent of 75% and his intelligence quotient level is clinically below 50. Still further, the Court noted, the Petitioner had herself admitted that Raghbir is mentally retarded to the extent of 75% while filing the written statement in the suit. 4. the Petitioner stated that sale of the suit land is necessary to utilize the same for taking care of Raghbir Singh. The Court observed that the Petitioner has not produced any material to prove that Raghbir Singh is not being looked after by his brothers and nephews. “Raghbir Singh is stated to be aged about 55 years on the date of filing of the suit. There is no material to show that Raghbir Singh was not taken care of by his relatives in all these years,” the Court observed. It added, “In any case, if the petitioner apprehends that plaintiff no.3 [Raghbir] is not being looked after properly, she shall be at liberty to file an application before the trial court, which shall be required to be decided by the court by putting the remaining plaintiffs to terms.” Case Title: Sarjeet Kaur v.
