>> GOOD NEWS! On Tuesday May 18th a bill to reauthorize the federal
>> Farmland Protection Program will be introduced in the House. It is the
>> companion bill to S. 333 and is cosponsored by Reps. Farr (D-CA),
>> Gilchrest (R-MD), Boehlert (R-NY) and Condit (D-CA).
>> DETAILS: The bill reauthorizes the Farmland Protection Program at $55
>> million per year for matching grants to state, local, tribal and
>> nonprofit entities that purchase conservation easements from willing
>> sellers. By rewarding local initiative, FPP funds have been leveraged
>> nine-times over at the state and county level. The FPP is a voluntary
>> program that compensates landowners and protects property rights. It
>> creates no new bureaucracy and the government does not hold easements.
>> The Farmland Protection Program is enormously popular: it is
>> oversubscribed by 600% -- and has helped to permanently protect more
>> than 120,000 acres of America's best farm and ranch lands from sprawling
>> development. Unfortunately, the program's funding has run out.
>> Please make a phone call NOW to a key Representative or two in your
>> region and let them know of this opportunity to become an ORIGINAL
>> COSPONSOR of this legislation. They will probably sign on eventually, so
>> why not give them the chance to get extra credit for leadership?!
>> Please instruct your Rep. to contact Troy Philips (Farr) or Erika Feller
>> (Gilchrest) if they are interested in becoming an original cosponsor.
