The House will vote for final approval of the Farm Bill tomorrow morning before recessing for the rest of the week.
Passage in the House is no sure thing! Please call your Members of Congress and ask them to support the bill -- you can use the Capitol switchboard number (202-224-3121).
The bill will generate more than one billion dollars for saving working farm and ranchland, strengthening local communities and improving our nation’s agricultural lands, its wildlife and its water resources. The Alliance has sent letters endorsing the conference report to the leaders of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees. While some organizations are working on their positions and letters, we have received compliments from staff directors of both committees for our quick endorsement of the report.
Please continue to check our website for updates, we will have a full breakdown of the new programs and tools in the bill by the end of the day today.
P.S. -- This email list is for land trust leaders that are interested in the Farm Bill. Please let me know if there others at your organization or its partners who would like to subscribe.
