CBF - Helping Farmers Help the Environment. A new, invovative proposal would give farmers tax credits for installing best management practices which reduce stormwater runoff, sediments going into streams and nutrients running off fields of up to $150,000 and to other landowners who install forested riparian buffers.

Lamonte Garber, Senior Agriculture Consultant with CBF, talks about the Resource Enhancement and Protection Act at the Keystone Farm Show in York.

The Resource Enhancement and Protection Act was introduced last year as Senate Bill 1286 by Sen. Wenger (R-Lancaster, now retired), Sen. Waugh (R-York), Sen. O'Pake (D-Berks) and others and as House Bill 2878 by Rep. Stern (R-Blair), Rep. Hershey (R-Chester) and Rep. Daley (D-Washington). It is expected to be reintroduced shortly in the new legislative session.
