Statement by Mark McHargue, President, Regarding the Conserving and Restoring the America the Beautiful Report Known as 30X30
LINCOLN, NEB. – In response to the Conserving and Restoring the America the Beautiful report also known as 30X30, Nebraska Farm Bureau (NEFB) President Mark McHargue said “The Biden administration has again talked a big game but has provided very few real details as to how they plan to implement the 30×30 concept. The report released by the administration claims they want to focus on voluntary conservation efforts and will respect private property rights, and that’s a good thing. At the same time, NEFB will be watching this effort very carefully to ensure that those principals are upheld. Any effort to upend private land ownership or expand perpetual easements will be swiftly opposed by our organization.”
