NSAC delivers letter to Senate, joins conservation support

The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition today sent senators a letter urging them “to expeditiously complete consideration of the farm bill, reject all non-germane amendments, and strengthen the bill’s reform, food, and jobs provisions.”

The letter included NSAC’s views on a long list of amendments.

NSAC also joined 10 agricultural, forestry, and conservation organizations that sent senators a letter Wednesday urging no cuts to conservation beyond what has already been included in the Senate bill.

Other signers of the conservation letter are American Farmland Trust, Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, Ducks Unlimited, Environmental Defense Fund, Land Trust Alliance, National Association of Conservation Districts, National Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership and Trout Unlimited.

All together, more than 500 organizations, businesses and individuals signed the letter.
