Farm bill conservation programs need your support

This article from Babe Winkelman’s syndicated column points to the need for sportsmen to make a ruckus now in order to save the farm bill conservation programs.

These programs, such as CRP, Wetlands Reserve Programs, and other important means of helping farmers and ranchers preserve habitat, are on the chopping block along with many other programs post-Katrina.

Part of the basic purpose of government is health and security. CRP, WRP, etc., don’t just benefit wildlife, they benefit humans by cleaning our water. If you want to step up for these programs, call Senator Sam Brownback at (202) 224-6521, and/or Senator Pat Roberts at (202) 224-4774. Ask them to send you in writing their stances on full funding in the 2007 Farm Bill for conservation programs.
