In response to the Senate’s passage of an amended H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) released the following statement from Dr. Melinda Cep, senior director for policy, food and markets.
“The Senate just reinforced what bipartisanship can mean for conservation. Today’s Farm Bill invests in and expands strong conservation measures that help farmers and ranchers better protect America’s grasslands, wildlife habitat, soil, and water across the Great Plains and beyond.
“We urge the House and Senate to deliver a final Farm Bill that maintains funding for the conservation title and includes a strong Sodsaver policy. We’re calling for a bill rooted in conservation that will improve environmental outcomes, rejects any dangerous environmental riders, and supports working land conservation programs.”
