NACD Commends Senate on Farm Bill Passage
The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) commends the full Senate for final passage of the 2013 Farm Bill under the leadership of Chairwoman Stabenow and Ranking Member Cochran.

"The Senate-passed Farm Bill includes a robust and consolidated Title II framework as well as an historic amendment to strengthen our ability to conserve natural resources for the future by tying conservation compliance to crop insurance," said NACD President Earl Garber. "We thank Chairwoman Stabenow and Ranking Member Cochran for their strong, bipartisan cooperation on this bill, and we call on House Leadership to follow the Senate's lead and bring the Farm Bill to the floor next week."

This Farm Bill calls for a number of meaningful reform measures that would cut costs while increasing efficiencies and best management tools to care for our natural resources. For more information on the language to tie conservation compliance to crop insurance, supported by a wide coalition of conservation, agriculture, environment and crop insurance groups, click here."Producers deserve to have a long-term framework in place to effectively and efficiently manage their land, resources and business for the years ahead," said Garber. "As our population continues to increase, and severe weather events are on the rise, the passage of a five-year Farm Bill has never been more critical, with far-reaching consequences on everything from our food security, to the economy, and the mitigation of the impacts of natural disasters on the land, air and water we rely on every day."
