ANNAPOLIS - EPA Senior Adviser Chuck Fox said in two interviews last week that Maryland poultry farmers could face more stringent pollution regulations than those in other states, a stance that has drawn opposition from Gov. Martin O'Malley and the Maryland Farm Bureau.

Fox said that although the amount of pollution large-scale poultry farms can produce is regulated by states, the Environmental Protection Agency has the final say in the matter and can force states to make stricter guidelines if need be.
