As you may recall, last year’s attempt to create a new Farm Bill died in the U.S. House, having never reached the full House floor.  Today, the Farm Bill will be debated on the House floor; however, we need your help voicing support for two important conservation measures currently under debate.  To that end, we are asking all our supporters to contact their U.S. Representative today with the following message: Vote YES on final passage of a five-year Farm Bill now.
 
Our ability to flush coveys behind good bird dogs under autumn skies depends on your emails and phone calls TODAY.  Your Representative’s contact info is available at http://www.house.gov/htbin/findrep or leave phone messages by calling the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
 
Your voice will make a difference.  Current and future generations of sportsmen and sportswomen are depending on you.  Thanks for your help.
 
Note: Last month, Quail Forever issued an Action Alert requesting our members contact U.S. Senators in support of passing the 2013 Farm Bill.  By all measures, that Action Alert generated more response than any other in our three decade history.  Thank you for taking action.  Your contacts helped to persuade the Senate to pass their Farm Bill by a vote of 66 to 27.
