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.
