SfL Applauds House Select Committee Report Authors For Recognizing Valuable Role of Agriculture In Addressing Climate Challenges

June 30, 2020

For Immediate Release

(June 30, 2020) – “Solutions from the Land (SfL) has long supported the incentive-based nature of the agricultural recommendations outlined in the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis Majority report. We applaud Chairwoman Castor and the other report authors for recognizing the critical role America’s farmers, ranchers and foresters can play in providing valuable climate and ecosystem services that benefit producers and the planet.

“SfL is continuing to study the 500+-page report, but is particularly encouraged by the report’s advocacy of farmer-to-farmer education as a principal building block to support the role of agriculture in addressing climate change. Furthermore, the report’s recommendation to build on the Renewable Fuel Standard to further enable the expanded use of biofuels in the implementation of a low-carbon fuel standard (LCFS) is a positive development. SfL also welcomes the report’s call for investments in water storage and infrastructure.

“We look forward to working with the Congress to build bipartisan support for practical and pragmatic climate smart agriculture enabling policies.”
