NWF: “We are thrilled the Senate has passed a strong bill that encourages wildlife conservation on agricultural lands."
Washington, DC – Today, the Senate passed its version of the 2018 farm bill. Aviva Glaser, agricultural policy director for the National Wildlife Federation, praised the conservation provisions of the bill.
“We are thrilled the Senate has passed a strong bill that encourages wildlife conservation on agricultural lands. We thank Chairman Pat Roberts and Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow for crafting a strong conservation title and keeping the bill free of attacks on the laws that protect our nation’s waters and wildlife. Although the bill includes many strong provisions for grasslands, we encourage Congress to go further and include a national ‘sodsaver’ provision in the final legislation. We urge the conferees to quickly pass a 2018 farm bill that supports farmers while protecting our nation’s soil, water and wildlife.”
