Action Alert: Your Senator Needs to Hear from Pheasant Hunters This Morning
Years of positioning and political posturing is finally coming to a head in Washington, D.C. today. The future of every pheasant hunter and pheasant hunter’s grandchild is being debated on the floor of the U.S. Senate this morning.Earlier this month, Pheasants Forever joined fellow conservation organizations along with farm groups in a historical coalition supporting crop insurance’s connection to conservation compliance. Today . . . THIS MORNING . . . it’s critical that your state’s two U.S. Senators hear the following from every Pheasants Forever member as the Farm Bill is debated on the Senate floor:
- You support the conservation compliance tied crop insurance deal Pheasants Forever agreed to without amendments to weaken it.
- You support Sodsaver policy to protect America’s last remaining native prairies, which are critical to you as an American bird hunter.
- You support a strong Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), which is critical to water quality, wildlife habitat, healthy soil, rural economies, outdoor recreation and America’s hunting heritage.
No matter what’s on your day’s list of “To Do’s,” please put this at the top. Our ability to chase roosters behind good bird dogs under autumn skies depends on your emails and phone calls today. Your two U.S. Senators absolutely need to hear from you today.
Your voice will make a difference. Current and future generations of sportsmen and sportswomen depend on you this morning. Thanks for your help.
