Bill would freeze CRP signups


Legislation introduced Wednesday would put a moratorium on new signups for the Conservation Reserve Program.

Congressman Tom Tiffany’s GRAIN For America Act would place a 1-year moratorium on the enrollment of farmland in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), which pays farmers to leave land uncultivated.  After the 1-year moratorium, the same legislation would prevent prime farmland from being enrolled in the CRP.

Tiffany is critical of the Biden administration’s expansion of the program in 2021, calling it a “green fantasy” attempt to achieve net-zero emissions.
