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.

Read the complete letter. (PDF)
