Funding bill addressing climate change clears Congress

The Inflation Reduction Act is headed to President Biden’s desk for signature. The legislation passed the U.S. House on Friday on a strict party-line vote, 220-207. The bill aims to expand climate-related farming practices, increases investments in conservation, rural development, and energy programs.  The bill also includes new incentives for biofuels.  

Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says the legislation will create good-paying jobs and more economic opportunities in rural communities across the country.  

National Farmers Union President Rob Larew praised the action and says it makes historic investments in voluntary, incentive-based conservation programs.
