"The Senate Agriculture Committee should be commended for its commitment and determination to write and pass a Farm Bill that saves taxpayers money and provides confidence to farmers and their lenders as they make business decisions for upcoming growing seasons. The ability of the Committee to come together and forge this bipartisan bill underscores the fact that the Farm Bill is important to all sectors of our nation and economy.”
- American Association of Crop Insurers and Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau

“We are very pleased that the agreement that would re-link conservation compliance and crop insurance was included in the bill passed by the Senate Agriculture Committee. The united front of agriculture and conservation groups will help to ensure that our producers benefit from the certainty of a five-year farm bill while they are incentivized to protect our nation’s natural resources.”
- National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson

“Conservation compliance has been a critically important policy, helping us conserve fish and wildlife habitat through a partnership between farmers and taxpayers. State fish and wildlife agencies applaud the historic steps taken today to strengthen conservation compliance by linking it to crop insurance subsidies, and look forward to working with members of Congress and our partners in the conservation and agriculture communities to see these policies become law.”
- Executive Director of the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, Ron Regan

“Today, the Senate Agriculture Committee, conservationists, and our colleagues in the agricultural collectively community mapped the path to advance protections for wildlife habitats on working lands, while addressing the needs of those who work the land.”
- President and CEO, National Wildlife Federation, Larry Schweiger

“The agreement reached by conservation and agricultural groups on conservation compliance was historic in its broad and unique base of support; today that support was reaffirmed by a bipartisan majority of the United States Senate Agriculture Committee, who saw both the wisdom and the workability of this impressive consensus.”
- President and CEO, Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, Whit Fosburgh
