Not farts...

Manure decomposing..

And they are setting up equipment (via state grants) to convert that manure decomposition into electricity.

Your headline seems disjointed from your article..

State regulators want more farmers to reduce emissions with methane digesters, which capture methane from manure in large storage tanks and convert the gas into electricity.

The state has set aside $50 million to help dairies set up digesters, but farmers say that's not nearly enough to equip the state's roughly 1,500 dairies.

New Hope Dairy, which has 1,500 cows in Sacramento County, installed a $4 million methane digester in 2013, thanks to state grants and a partnership with California Biogas LLC, which operates the system to generate renewable power for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District.

They would be better off putting that meter on congress.
Enough hot gas passes though there to be taxable.

State regulations were not up-to-date enough to handle the Oklahoma gas piped to the Los Angeles storage wells, and leaving it up to the corporation to do something was futile.

Instead of updating current regulations lets make more.....
