Expressing the sense of Congress regarding support for voluntary, incentive-based, private land conservation implemented through cooperation with local soil and water conservation districts.


IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

July 10, 2014

Mr. Pryor (for himself, Mr. Boozman, and Mr. Donnelly) submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry


CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of Congress regarding support for voluntary, incentive-based, private land conservation implemented through cooperation with local soil and water conservation districts.

    Whereas over 70 percent of the contiguous United States is privately owned;

    Whereas the future of the environment is determined by the decisions made by the men and women who own and manage that land, including urban landscapes;

    Whereas world population is projected to reach 9,000,000,000 people by 2050;

    Whereas increased production will be needed from agricultural land to feed the increasing population;

    Whereas meeting these needs will make caring for the environment more difficult; and

    Whereas landowners work to ensure they sustain a healthy environment to support abundant wildlife: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That—

(1) Congress supports the conservation of the Nation’s natural resources and working lands; and

(2) it is the sense of Congress that voluntary, incentive-based, private land conservation, provided in partnership with local conservation districts, is necessary to sustain natural resources, meet the needs of a growing population, and ensure safe, abundant, and adequate resources for current and future generations.
