LaMalfa: USDA Conservation Programs Persevering Despite 2020’s Challenges

Washington, D.C. – Today, the House Agriculture Committee’s Conservation and Forestry Subcommittee held a hearing to review the challenges and successes of conservation programs in 2020. After the hearing, Subcommittee Ranking Member Doug LaMalfa (CA-1) released the following remarks:

“USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has persevered through the challenges of this year, adapting to the restrictions in place due to COVID-19 and continuing to administer these critical conservation programs. In the last several farm bills, we prioritized access to conservation programs across the country. In my home state of California, partnerships with NRCS have improved waterfowl habitats. It was great to hear from both NRCS Acting Chief Kevin Norton as well as our conservation partners. I look forward to maintaining relationships that are good for waterfowl and our agriculture lands across the country.”
