Bipartisan Farm Bill Needed to Support Land Stewardship, Farmer-Led Conservation

WASHINGTON, DC  Following Congress’s failure to pass a bipartisan Farm Bill and the subsequent lapsing of key programs essential for land and water stewardship, the National Wildlife Federation and 42 of its affiliate organizations called on lawmakers to quickly come together to pass a bipartisan Farm Bill with strong conservation provisions,  as outlined in this letter.
“Farmers and ranchers count on the Farm Bill for the tools they need to protect our rivers and streams, support habitat and our wildlife heritage, and secure working lands for future generations. The failure of Congress to pass a bipartisan Farm Bill on-time is a missed opportunity that hurts both America’s farmers and our land, water and wildlife resources,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “Congress should quickly come together to pass a strong, conservation-friendly Farm Bill.”
