Farmer Holding SonTell Congress: Pass the Farm Bill 

Congress has a busy legislative agenda this fall. Among their top priorities must be finishing the Farm Bill. Much progress has been made this year to reauthorize programs that are critical for farmland protection, for improving farming practices and for keeping farmers on the land. We cannot allow this vitally important bill to stall, leaving family farms and rural communities in limbo.

Send a letter to your Senators and Representative today so they understand the importance of Farm Bill conservation programs. Tell them failure to pass a Farm Bill is not an option. They need to finish a five-year Farm Bill.

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.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
