Against the proposed regulations - consequences would be detrimental

I am against passing the proposed regulations. Focusing on development restrictions would be an inefficient way to address pollutants, and would produce sprawl. It would also be damaging to the economy of Virginia.

Instead, focus should be on the largest pollutant contributor, agricultural runoff.
