House of Representatives Supporting FRPP

In March 2006, Representative Kuhl (R-NY) and Representative Chandler (D-KY) circulated a Dear Colleague letter supporting the Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program (FRPP). Dozens of land trusts recruited their Representatives to sign on to this letter - thank you! If your Representative signed on, please be sure to send a thank you note.

July 17: The House just voted 277-130 to pass the charities package! 56 Democrats joined their Republican colleagues to support charitable giving incentives, including the enhanced easement incentive - the second-highest number of defections after the research and development tax credit. Several others spoke on the floor in support of the conservation easement incentive, and other favorable charitable incentives. Thank you to organizations like Ducks Unlimited, CSF and others that reached out to Congressional offices over the last few days or alerted their membership of this important vote. Now, we pivot to the Senate.
