Chairman Peterson statement on delayed CSP farm bill conservation program payments


December 10, 2019

Congressman Collin Peterson, who serves as the Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, released the following statement today in regard to the delay in payments being made on USDA Conservation Stewardship Program contracts:

“I’m not sure what the delay was, but this is one more source of stress that farmers don’t need right now. I’m told that the funding was released by the Office of Management and Budget on Friday, and I hope that payments will be made by USDA as quickly as possible. I would encourage folks who haven’t gotten their CSP payments or heard from their local NRCS office to make a call or stop by to check on their status. A delay like this means bills can’t be paid in their local communities and also threatens to impact tax planning.”
