The following is a statement from National Association of Conservation Districts President Gene Schmidt regarding the approval of the 2012 Farm Bill by the Senate Agriculture Committee:
"On behalf of the National Association of Conservation Districts and our 3,000 member districts across the country, we applaud the Senate Agriculture Committee for its swift approval of the 2012 Farm Bill. Today's vote demonstrates a strong commitment to American agriculture and the protection of our precious natural resource base for the future, while at the same time reducing our nation's deficit by more than an estimated $23 billion. We're especially pleased with a strong Conservation Title that streamlines and consolidates programs for increased efficiency and ease-of-use for producers, while maintaining critical funding for valuable Technical Assistance helping provide adequate boots on the ground to implement conservation where it counts. We encourage the full Senate to act quickly and vote in favor of this bipartisan, common-sense bill."
