The Senate recently introduced a bipartisan Farm Bill that is largely free of anti-environmental riders, tell your senators to keep it that way!The Farm Bill has traditionally delivered comprehensive food and farm policy designed to ensure both healthy food systems and a healthy environment. However, this must-pass piece of legislation has now been targeted as a vehicle for a number of poisonous riders that would put our land, water, wildlife, and communities at risk. The defunct House Farm Bill already contains a litany of poison pill riders that would weaken the SNAP anti-hunger program, contaminate our food and drinking water supplies with pesticides, roll back protections for endangered wildlife, and log away our national forests.While the Senate version avoids these toxic provisions, the bill will soon be up for consideration on the chamber floor. This is a prime opportunity for legislators to tack on 'poison pill' riders. Now is the time to contact your senators and urge them to oppose any bad amendments and maintain a workable, bipartisan farm bill.The American people deserve a farm bill that provides safe food, clean water, and a healthy environment. The House Farm Bill failed to deliver, but with your help we can ensure that the Senate does not follow suit.Add a personal message in your own words!
