NACD President Calls on Congress to Move Forward with Farm Bill

NACD President Calls on Congress to Move Forward with Farm Bill
In the wake of Congress' failure to pass a Farm Bill last week, National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) President Earl Garber is calling on Congress to do the right thing and renew its efforts to pass a five-year bill before the current one expires on September 30.

"There are a number of options on the table for moving forward with a Farm Bill, and failure simply cannot be one of them," said Garber. "Now that the dust has settled, it's time for Congress to regroup and get this bill done. There is still time before the September 30 deadline, and we are confident that Congress can and will do the right thing and provide needed certainty for farmers and landowners to effectively and efficiently manage their land, resources and businesses for the years ahead."

NACD continues to be a strong supporter of the robust and consolidated Title II framework included in both the Senate and House versions of the bill.

"Failure to pass a Farm Bill would mean the loss of meaningful reform measures that would cut costs while increasing efficiencies and best management tools to care for our natural resources," Garber continued. "In the coming weeks, NACD and its members will be renewing our calls for passage of a five-year bill. The future of our land, air, water and other natural resources is simply too important to become the victim of politics. "

The Farm Bill will be one of the key issues on the agenda at the NACD Legislative Conference next month. The conference will include keynote remarks by Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow as well as a Farm Bill panel with Congressional staff.
