Private property owners are the best stewards of our lands. In fact, they have been implementing conservation practices for generations. We believe that voluntary conservation at the local level is important to healthy land management. Members of the Congressional Western Caucus believe in implementing policies that cut back on burdensome regulations that restrict private land managers from deploying voluntary conservation efforts or restrict multiple-use. We will continue to encourage the Administration and our colleagues in Congress to ensure private land managers have a seat at the table regarding any discussions surrounding agriculture, multiple-use, and conservation. Private landowners are the voice of rural America, and the federal government can learn more than a thing or two about land management from our private partners.
