Romney ag plan would cut regulations, expand energy production

Blasting the Obama administration for what he called "overzealous" regulation and taxes, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney yesterday laid out a plan that he said would promote the growth of the agriculture sector. The former Massachusetts governor said he would cut down on excessive regulation and reform environmental laws while remaining committed to developing domestic energy and maintaining the renewable fuel standard. The plan also calls for the elimination of the estate tax and an expansion of foreign trade agreements. Romney said President Obama's agriculture policies have been "out of touch" and "counterproductive."
