Support a healthy and more sustainable farm bill!

The Senate Agriculture Committee has passed its version of the 2012 farm bill, and it will be on the Senate floor for debate any day now.

As it's now written, this bill will continue to give away tens of billions of taxpayer dollars in subsidies each year to the largest industrial commodity farm operations, which are wreaking havoc on our environment.

Meanwhile, the programs that invest in local, organic and healthy food and protect our natural resources go drastically underfunded.

When the bill comes to the Senate floor, there will be an opportunity to amend it to redirect billions of dollars from crop insurance subsidies to nutrition, conservation and local and healthy food programs.

But it will only happen if your senators hear from you. It's time to break the farm lobby's long-standing grip and make sure that Congress hears the voices of citizens like you who want your tax dollars to support a healthy and more sustainable farm bill.
