Pass the Farm Bill
Dear [Decision Maker],
A top priority for you and your Congressional colleagues must be finishing a comprehensive Farm Bill.
America's farm and ranch land is a vital resource that is very important to me, my family and my community. Our farm and ranch land provides food security for our nation while also maintaining open space, clean water and wildlife habitat. These benefits come as a result of important Farm Bill conservation programs. We need you to finish a comprehensive five-year Farm Bill and continue these benefits now and into the future.
We also need a sound safety net that protects farms and natural resources. Relinking conservation compliance with crop insurance premium assistance is absolutely necessary in the Farm Bill. The bipartisan Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2013 (S. 954) passed by the U.S. Senate includes this important measure, which protects against soil erosion, preserves important wetlands and protects taxpayers' investments in sound agricultural and conservation policy.
I urge you to swiftly consider and pass a comprehensive five-year Farm Bill that provides for sound farmland conservation for many years to come.
