Sen. Waugh On Farm Conservation, REAP: Sen. Mike Waugh (R-York) and co-sponsor of the Resource Enhancement and Protection Act (REAP) that would give tax credits to farmers to install best management practices speaks to a town meeting in Jacobus, York County, on March 28 designed to educate people on the proposal.
He commented on the importance of helping farmers install conservation practices, but also about the difficulties of getting a proposal like this passed by the General Assembly and signed by Gov. Rendell without broad support.
