On November 19, 2021, TCS submitted public comments to the Council on Environmental Quality regarding the Federal Agency Climate Adaptation and Resilience Plans (specifically, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s plan), which was published on October 7, 2021. TCS recommended ensuring that the federal crop insurance program does not work at cross purposes with agriculture conservation programs, in addition to prioritizing federal dollars toward common sense conservation practices that not only help the climate but also water, air, soil, etc. Agriculture programs should promote economic and climate resilience instead of dependence on federal subsidies.
