URGENT: Contact the Senate Agriculture Committee Today!

This Wednesday morning, the Senate Agriculture Committee is scheduled to approve or reject an amendment after leadership released a bipartisan draft Farm Bill last Friday afternoon. There are some provisions in that draft Farm Bill that are good for Indian Country. But missing from this draft Farm Bill are several very important matters that Coalition members have sought for a long time. (The Native Farm Bill Coalition’s stance on the bill is available online.)

The Native Farm Bill Coalition asks tribes to immediately urge, before Wednesday’s markup, committee members to adopt an amendment being championed by Senators Smith and Heitkamp on behalf of Indian tribes and tribal organizations.
