Major Obama proposal doesn't change ag rules -- so why are farm groups so worried?

Today, farmers and ranchers can freely do any number of things on their property affecting rivers, creeks and wetlands that no other sector could undertake without going to the federal government for permission. Under a major regulatory proposal being pushed by U.S. EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers that wouldn’t change -- but some major farm groups are vowing to kill the plan. The main concerns appear to be less about what federal regulators are proposing now than what both farmers and environmentalists expect could come next.
