Chairwoman Applauds USDA Climate-Smart Agriculture Funding

WASHINGTON – Upon Wednesday’s announcement of funding for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities, Senate Committee on Agriculture, Forestry, and Nutrition Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow of Michigan issued the following statement:

“Today’s announcement is a huge step forward to provide more of the tools our farmers and rural communities need to address the climate crisis and stay profitable at the same time,” said Chairwoman Stabenow. “From climate-smart agriculture and forestry to biobased products and renewable fuels, these public-private partnerships create good-paying jobs and improve our carbon footprint on and off the farm too. By pairing federal investment with innovation at the local level, USDA is scaling up the exciting work that so many partners are already doing on the ground.”
