Today, Governor Kim Reynolds signed into law a $282 million water quality bill that provides long-term funding for science-based water quality protection practices.

“Iowans agree that water quality improvement is a shared goal, and this legislation is a historic milestone that will help enhance efforts and continue the positive momentum of water quality improvement and soil conservation,” says IFBF President Craig Hill.  “The long-term dedicated funding from the bill over the next 12 years, coupled with the significant farmer investments in conservation, will allow Iowa to continue making big strides toward advancing water quality and soil health.”
