 Take Action to Pass a Sustainable Farm Bill

On October 30, conference committee members kicked off negotiations about the Farm Bill.  Appointed members of the House and Senate, including Representative Marcia Fudge (D-OH) and Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), will work to reconcile the House and Senate versions of the bill into one final conference report.  During this process, we need to ensure sustainable agriculture programs are protected.

Reach out to your legislator today!  Tell them to protect and invest in programs that:
  • Foster the next generation of farmers
  • Spur economic development through local foods
  • Support organic farmers

 



MORE ON THE FARM BILL

As Farm Bill debates heat up again, just days ago, OEFFA and nearly 300 other organizations sent this letter urging House and Senate Farm Bill conferees, including Representative Marcia Fudge (D-OH) and Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), to reattach basic conservation requirements to federal subsidies for crop insurance, and to include a nationwide Sodsaver provision to the bill.

Earlier last month, members of Congress delivered “Dear Colleague” letters   to Congressional leadership (see the House letter here and the Senate letter here), urging them to support programs for beginning farmers and ranchers. These follow a similar letter sent to Congress by 130 organizations, including OEFFA, earlier this month.
