Statement of Defenders of Wildlife President Jamie Rappaport Clark

 

Washington, D.C. (November 22, 2013) —“The Obama Administration is right to support the Conservation Compliance program in the Farm Bill. Linking crop insurance to conservation compliance provides crucial protections for our native wetlands and grasslands, while providing an important safety net for America’s Farmers. Conservation compliance benefits America’s wildlife and watersheds and ensures the ongoing productivity of our working lands.”
