The Farm Bill

"While it is easy to think of the farm bill today almost solely in terms of price supports for farmers, one of its primary intentions has been to encourage land conservation. However, since the 1996 Farm Bill, conservation spending as a percentage of direct aid to farmers has dropped from 26 percent in 1996 and 1997 to 6 percent in 2000."
