ALBANY, GA (WALB) –A group is traveling the United States with growing concern that the government is choosing fish over farmers.

They attended a small Tea Party Patriot rally in Albany Tuesday night. They say farmers in Central Valley California can't irrigate their crops because the government put water off limits to protect an endangered bait fish.

They say the decision by the Environmental Protection Agency is hurting thousands of farmers.

"It's beyond ridiculous. I'm all for environmental law. I'm an outdoors man and a hunter and consider myself an environmentalist. But I don't want to see a gross misuse of that law," said Daniel Blackford with the San Antonio Tea Party.

The group is traveling the country to gain support and urge lawmakers to make a change.
