An Open Letter

To: Sen. Butler, Rep. Gomez, Sen. Padilla

From: A verified voter in Los Angeles, CA

May 29

I am writing to urge you to protect the $19.5 billion in climate-smart agriculture and conservation funding allocated through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) as Congress works to pass a farm bill. This funding is crucial for supporting farmers in adopting sustainable practices and addressing the climate crisis while supporting clean water, wildlife habitat, and soil health. Diverting these funds or removing the “climate-smart” requirement would undermine the purpose of this investment. Please stand firm in defending the IRA’s climate-smart agriculture funding. Investing in sustainable agriculture and conservation is essential for mitigating climate change, protecting our agricultural sector, and safeguarding our food supply and natural resources for future generations. Thank you for your leadership on this critical issue.
