American Farmland Trust Supports Thompson-Fortenberry Conservation Compliance Bill

American Farmland Trust Supports Thompson-Fortenberry Conservation Compliance Bill
American Farmland Trust (AFT) President Jon Scholl praised the introduction of H.R. 2260, The Crop Insurance Accountability Act of 2013, by Congressman Mike Thompson (D-Calif.) and Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.).

"AFT is pleased that Congressmen Thompson and Fortenberry are leading the effort to re-link conservation compliance with crop insurance premium assistance. Conservation compliance is a common-sense, reasonable policy that is good for the environment and good for farmers," said Scholl.

The Senate version of the farm bill includes language that re-links conservation compliance with crop insurance premium assistance. Scholl said re-linking conservation compliance to crop insurance protects against soil erosion, preserves important wetlands and protects taxpayers' investments in sound agricultural and conservation policy. Conservation compliance was de-coupled from crop insurance in 1996 and linked to the newly created direct payment program implemented that year.

"As the House of Representatives begins their work on the farm bill in the coming weeks, we look forward to working with them on this measure," Scholl added.
