Chairman David Scott Applauds Passage of Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act in House; Rebukes Republican Partisanship, Refusal to Help American Producers and Consumers
Washington, June 16, 2022
House Agriculture Committee Chairman David Scott issued the following statement applauding House passage of the Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act.
“As we all know, the last two years have led to drastic fluctuations in prices. Whether you look at the ongoing impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, or the global disruptions associated with Putin’s war in Ukraine, American farmers, ranchers, and consumers have faced increasing costs on the farm, the grocery aisle, and every stop in between,” stated Chairman David Scott. “The House-passed Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act tackles those price increases head on by assuring fair competition in the meat and poultry sectors, increasing options at the pump, and providing needed support for America’s agricultural sector and food supply chain. I am extremely proud of the work of our House Agriculture Committee Members and the bipartisan support they have garnered for the bills included in this package."
