Take Action: Email to Prevent Critical Cuts to the Farm Bill!!

BREAKING: A Budget deal reached as soon as Monday will shape the future of conservation programs and credit for beginning and minority farmers into the next decade!

This is a critical moment. The White House and House Republican leadership are negotiating a budget deal that would effectively rewrite the next Farm Bill now by taking a huge bite out of Farm Bill mandatory funding for programs that support on-farm conservation and wetland protection – programs that are truly investments in a sustainable future!

These cuts will drastically reduce total Farm Bill funding available for the 2012 Farm Bill and harm the chances of getting a decent Farm Bill next year.

Leaders in the Senate need to push back – right now, before it is too late.

Send a note to chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee, Senator Debbie Stabenow, and urge her not to yield her power to write her own Farm Bill!

It’s easy to email and your emails make a difference!!!!!
