Action 3:

Oppose the farm bill.

Last week the House Committee on Agriculture passed H.R. 2 the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018 out of committee.  Unfortunately, the House appears to be using this bill as a backdoor to undermine longstanding conservation efforts. It would allow increased logging in national forests, weaken the Clean Water Act, and reduce funding for conservation initiatives, in addition to adding burdensome regulations to the SNAP (food stamp) program.  Ask Congressman Wittman (202-225-4261 or 730-6595) to oppose the bill unless it removes the changes to logging regulations, the Clean Water Act, and SNAP.  Also, he should oppose any reduction in funding for conservation initiatives.
