HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Ed Rendell on Wednesday vetoed a bill that
would limit the authority of local governments to regulate farming — a
move criticized by farmers but praised by opponents of "factory farms."

Rendell said the bill fails to balance the business interests of farmers
against the threat of pollution from the runoff of manure and sludge
spread on farmland in a "comprehensive and progressive way." He pledged
that his administration would work with interested groups to craft such
legislation in 2004.
