The 2014 Farm Bill, signed into law by President Obama on February 7, provides more than $1 billion for conservation, exceeding all other federal sources of conservation funding. This bill will keep working farms and ranches in family hands, helping to restore and maintain our ways of life.

On July 17, the House voted on a bipartisan vote of 277-130 to make the conservation tax incentive permanent! This is a huge step forward for land conservation and the land trust community. Next, the measure goes to the Senate for a vote.
We need your help in getting this enacted into law. Ask your senator to join Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and 25 of his colleagues as co-sponsors of the Rural Heritage Conservation Extension Act, S. 526.
