House Passes Farm Bill With Key Conservation Measures

Statement of Bill Wenzel

On

House passage of the Farm Bill Conference Report

The Farm Bill passed its biggest hurdle yet thanks to bipartisan support for both farmers and America’s natural resources. The vote by the House of Representatives to support the Farm Bill brings us one step closer to restoring programs that conserve soil, water, and habitat on farmland, including the compact between farmers and taxpayers that farmers who receive crop insurance premium subsidies adopt basic conservation practices. We call on all members of the Senate to also pass the 2014 Farm Bill and send it to President Obama’s desk.
