Conservation Districts Share in Industry's Disappointment Over House's Failure to Advance Farm BillFri, 18 May 2018 13:08:18 CDT
Today, the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) released a statement after the U.S. House of Representatives voted to defeat the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018 (H.R. 2).
“We are disappointed the House was unable to advance a farm bill today,” NACD President Brent Van Dyke said. “Today’s defeat brings us further away from passing a new farm bill on time and providing producers with the certainty they need to continue feeding and clothing this nation. Farmers and ranchers across the country utilize farm bill conservation programs on their operations every day to preserve natural resources for future generations. With just over four months before the current farm bill expires, Congress must come together to protect America’s producers.”
