WASHINGTON, D.C. — Bipartisan legislation from U.S. Senators John Thune (R-S.D.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) will help strengthen and improve the Conservation Reserve Program and ensure it continues to benefit farmers and landowners by restoring wildlife habitat, recovering imperiled species, and supporting clean water and soil health.
"The Conservation Reserve Program is an essential tool to help farmers and landowners safeguard wildlife habitat, support clean water and native species, and promote public-private partnerships to address challenges facing species essential to our wildlife heritage,” said Julie Sibbing, associate vice president for land stewardship at the National Wildlife Federation. “This bipartisan legislation makes critical improvements to the program, including expanding its support for responsible grazing and related infrastructure, that will help it deliver better results for people and wildlife alike. The Senate should advance this bill or ensure it passes as part of a larger package.”
