  • Protect Our Prairies Act; Your Voice for Prairie Is Needed Now! » Missouri Prairie Foundation | Prairies Now and Forever
    prairie region of the United States by voicing support for the Protect Our Prairies Act H R 686 a bipartisan bill introduced by Representatives Noem R SD Walz D MN and six other cosponsors in February 2013 The Protect Our Prairies Act is common sense legislation that would enact a national sodsaver provision that would reduce taxpayer funded incentives to destroy vital grassland resources on private land With rising crop insurance subsidies and high commodity prices farmers not only have an incentive to convert native ecosystems to row crop production but they are also protected from the risk of crop failures and low yields Most of the grassland that is currently being converted from native ecosystems to cropland is marginal highly erodible and prone to flooding The Protect Our Prairie Act will reduce taxpayer funded incentives to destroy vital grassland resources and habitats providing multiple benefits to wildlife and taxpayers while preserving farmers rights The simple measures proposed in the bill to reduce the crop insurance subsidy for four years on newly broken grasslands without a cropping history along with making such acres ineligible for yield substitution will go a long way in removing government subsidies that influence farmers decisions to convert these sensitives lands to crops The Protect Our Prairies Act will still allow farmers to convert native prairie but farmers would no longer be eligible for the same levels of federal subsidies The Protect Our Prairies Act will also save an estimated 160 million in tax dollars over 10 years For full details read the Protect Our Prairies Fact Sheet How You Can Help Support the Protect Our Prairies Act Contact the U S Representative from your district ask for the staff person who works on agriculture policy and tell that staff person that you urge his or
