Dr. Scott Manley, Dir. of Conservation Programs in DU, was before the House Agricultural Committee to discuss DU’s successes in regards to the 2008 Farm Bill.  His talk offered suggestions to improve outcomes by working and partnering with landowners, state agencies, and/or non-profits.  Along with that, local governance of projects appeared to be beneficial to project outcomes.  Dr. Manley finished by describing the merits of flexibility and counseled Congress to keep flexibility in mind as they develop and deliver more farm bill conservation programs.
