The Center for Progressive Reform hosts periodic conferences and briefing sessions on a range of environmental, health and safety issues, often examined through a regulatory lens.
Earlier this year, the U.S. House and Senate passed drastically different versions of the 2018 Farm Bill. Families across the country are anxiously watching as the conference committee tries to reconcile policy differences related to work requirements for SNAP benefits. And conservation-minded farmers are concerned because programs that help them keep their land productive and resilient are on the chopping block.
On Thursday, November 15, CPR hosted a webinar featuring four national experts sharing their analysis of what the midterm elections mean for the 2018 Farm Bill, with a focus on the conservation title.
