SfL Commends BBBA’s Acknowledgement of Ag Leadership in Environmental Stewardship

October 29, 2021

Solutions from the Land applauds the inclusion of much needed agricultural climate action investments in the $1.75-trillion Build Back Better Act (BBBA) spending and tax framework introduced Thursday that would increase investments in climate smart agriculture (CSA) and boost biofuels. It is anticipated that the CSA provisions could reach some 130 million cropland acres per year, representing as many as 240,000 farms. The measure also calls for nearly $1 billion for biofuels infrastructure, a four-year extension of the biodiesel tax credit and a new tax credit for sustainable aviation fuel. These spending proposals acknowledge that farmers, ranchers, and forestland owners have long demonstrated leadership in environmental stewardship with strategies that provide benefits for their operations, the environment, and the public. SfL encourages bipartisan support of these measures.
