National Association of Conservation Districts Part of Coalition Telling Congress to Leave Funding for Ag, Conservation and Nutrition Programs Alone

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 04:56:32 CST

National Association of Conservation Districts Part of Coalition Telling Congress to Leave Funding for Ag, Conservation and Nutrition Programs Alone The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) joined a coalition of 253 other organizations representing America's agriculture, nutrition, conservation, rural development, finance, forestry, energy, trade, local government, labor, equipment manufacturing and crop insurance sectors, sent a letter to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Budget Committees and Appropriations Committees urging them to reject additional cuts to programs for fiscal year 2017 within the jurisdiction of the Senate and House Agriculture Committees


The letter also calls on leaders to oppose any proposals to re-open the Farm Bill during the consideration of the 2017 Budget Resolution and refrain from including reconciliation instructions for either the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry or for the House Committee on Agriculture.


"The Farm Bill programs are essential to the working of conservation on our land and for our healthy soil and clean air and water. The critical funding afforded through the Farm Bill allows producers to avoid unnecessary regulation while supporting our shared goals of natural resource conservation and promoting our nation's food security and sustainability," said NACD President Lee McDaniel. "NACD will continue to fight for mandatory program funding levels as set forth in the 2014 Farm Bill and for an increased prioritization of these critical conservation programs."


The coalition is a wide ranging group of organizations- from the Salvation Army to the Wild Turkey Federation to many state level Food banks to most of the significant commodity groups. To read the complete letter and see the list of groups signing the letter, click on the PDF link below.
