“Support Producers": Sec. Vilsack highlights Biden-Harris drought plan

Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack is highlighting the Biden-Harris Administration’s investment to ease drought impacts for farmers around the Colorado River Basin.

Vilsack met with leaders of the seven state departments of agriculture saying:

“USDA is acting to support producers... throughout the Colorado River Basin with a comprehensive approach that will assist conserving water and becoming less reliant on the Colorado River, promoting irrigation and water-use efficiency, and recovering from economic damages incurred from the unprecedented and ongoing drought.”

Some of those investments include the Western Water Framework and the Water Smart Initiative.
