Drought

In the face of the most disastrous, widespread drought in 50 years, what’s the worst possible thing Congress could do?

Cut the very conservation programs that help farmers protect themselves from the worst ravages of drought? It’s about to happen.

Help us tell Congress that this is unacceptable — call your Representative and Senators today! This week, they are negotiating the terms under which the Farm Bill will be extended and funded for at least the next six months.

The proposal on the table guts conservation programs that help farmers conserve water, protect and rebuild soil, and provide clean water and wildlife habitat. These programs are smart, long-term investments in the future of our agricultural lands — and our nation’s food supply.

Congress needs to hear from us today!
