Warren unveils extensive rural policy plan ahead of four-day visit to Iowa
Warren would also pay farmers to fight climate change, an initiative she connected to her Green New Deal plan.
Specifically, Warren writes that she will “dedicate resources from the $400 billion R&D commitment in my Green Manufacturing Plan towards innovations for decarbonizing the agriculture sector, including a farmer-led Innovation Fund that farmers can apply to use towards pioneering new methods of sustainable farming, like agroforestry.”
“My plan will help create a new farm economy where family farmers have financial security and the freedom to do what they do best,” Warren writes. “Taxpayers won’t pay twice — once at the grocery store and once through their taxes — for overproduced commodities. We will replenish our soil and our water to chart a path towards a climate solution and achieve the goals of the Green New Deal.”
