Defeat the Anti-Environmental Farm Bill

from the Sierra Club

Take Action Against Destructive Farm Bill

It’s hard to exaggerate how brazenly anti-environmental the farm bill now wending its way through the U.S. House of Representatives truly is. Let’s see… it exempts pesticides from the Endangered Species and Clean Water Acts. It boosts logging, removes environmental reviews, and makes it easier to build roads in national forests. It undermines sustainable agriculture, makes it tougher for people to qualify for nutrition assistance, and tips the scales toward corporate interests and away from small farmers. Get the picture? The bill is likely to come up for a full House vote this month.

The House is going after endangered species, clean water, national forests, organic food…and more!
