Legislation to keep wind and solar projects off productive farmland to be re-introduced

Legislation designed to help keep growing food on productive farmland died in Congress. 

Wisconsin Congressman Tom Tiffany tells Brownfield his Future Agriculture Retention and Management, or FARM Act will have to be re-introduced in the new year. “The FARM Act never even got a hearing.”

Tiffany says America needs to stop providing subsidies to wind and solar generation on productive farmland. “We need to grow food in America. It’s the most important thing that we do, and anything that prevents us from growing food, we should not be doing, so I expect to advance some CRP changes, also.”

Tiffany says with Republicans taking over the House, he’s optimistic his bills will not be buried in committee and get a hearing next time around.
