Rep. Noem Offers Amendment to Extend Sodsaver Provisions Nationwide
July 12, 2012
Rep. Noem offered an amendment during Farm Bill debate in the House Agriculture Committee to strengthen the bill's language on a sodsaver provision she championed. Rep. Noem and Rep. Tim Walz (D-MN) introduced the Protect our Prairies Act in May. The Farm Bill included the provision, but limited its scope to the Prairie Pothole Region. Rep. Noem's amendment, which she offered with Rep. Walz, would have expanded the program nationwide to maximize taxpayer savings.
