Farm Bill House Amendments: Advocate Today!

The House is more than halfway through the amendments being considered for the Farm Bill and there is cause for much concern.  Two amendments are expected to come up today:

  • the Schweikert Amendment #198, which strikes the Health Food Financing Initiative, and 
  • the McClintock Amendment #92: which eliminates the Farmers Market Food Promotion and Local Initiatives Program. 

Reach out today to oppose these amendments; find your representative here and share this message with the staffer who answers the phone. (Consider personalizing the message with your own story).

“Hello, my name is ___ and I’m a constituent and a voter. I would like to leave a message for Representative ___’s agriculture staffer. Can you take a message for me, please? The message is, I urge the Congressmember to:

  • Oppose the Schweikert Amendment #198, which strikes the Health Food Financing Initiative, and 
  • Oppose the McClintock Amendment #92: which eliminates the Farmers Market Food Promotion and Local Initiatives Program. 

More information about these programs is available from the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition.
