CSF hosts several Breakfast Briefings each year on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, which covers topical federal policies advancing in Congress.
Topic: 2018 Farm Bill Reauthorization
With committee hearings underway, eff orts to reauthorize the Farm Bill have begun. ThisBreakfast Briefi ng will provide an opportunity to understand the priorities of the nation’s leading hunting and fi shing conservation organizations for the reauthorization of the Farm Bill. The Farm Bill, a bundle of legislation that sets national agriculture, nutrition, forestry, and conservation policy, was most recently reauthorized in 2014. The bill’s important suite of programs help support soil, water, and fish and wildlife conservation on America’s private lands, farms, ranches, and forests.
The 2014 Farm Bill contains many programs that protect fish and wildlife habitat. Some examples include the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), which allows farmers to take environmentally sensitive land out of production in exchange for rental payments; the Voluntary Public Access and Habitat Incentive Program (VPA-HIP), which encourages landowners to open their lands for public access; and the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP), which conserves wetlands and other important habitats through easements. Th ese programs account for over $5 billion in conservation funding per year and are vital tools in conserving fish and wildlife habitat and enhancing America’s hunting and angling heritage. It is critical to carry over the conservation successes of previous farm bills into 2018 and beyond.
