Senate Fully Funds Working
Lands Conservation Programs
The Senate Appropriations Committee’s recently approved
FY 06 agriculture funding bill includes large increases
to the Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program (FRPP)
and the Conservation Security Program (CSP). The committee
funded the FRPP at its full, authorized level of $100
million, an increase of $26.5 million over the level approved
by the House of Representatives. The bill also lifts the
cap placed on CSP last year and increases funding above
the $245 million approved by the House.
