The House has adopted a 2012 budget that disproportionately impacts conservation on our nation’s farms and ranches!
We need a strong, consistent farm policy that includes funding for conservation. But the short-sighted 2012 spending bill approved by the House threatens to pull the rug out from under conservation funding, a key area needed to help farmers and ranchers safeguard our environment and protect their land.
Why do you feel conservation funding is important? Share your comments and help us build a strong message as we prepare to reach out to the Senate and ensure that they deal more fairly with funding that impacts America’s farms and ranches.
