If you make a false statement on the required RRA form(s), Reclamation can prosecute
you under the following statement:
Under the provisions of 18 U.S.C. 1001, it is a crime punishable by 5 years imprisonment or a fine of up to $10,000, or
both, for any person knowingly and willfully to submit or cause to be submitted to
any agency of the United States any false or fraudulent statement(s) as to any matter
within the agency's jurisdiction. False statements by the farm operator will also result in loss of eligibility. Eligibility can only be regained upon the approval of the Commissioner.
