The Kansas Supreme Court has nixed plans by Norton County to pass more restrictive regulations for confined animal feeding operations.

The court upheld a lower court verdict that said the proposed regulations for Norton County — which went above and beyond state and federal laws — conflicted with a law providing a uniform standard of CAFO regulations for the state. In short, state laws trump county laws.

The Kansas Livestock Association and three of its members brought the suit.
