Republican House Initiative To Reverse Administration’s Burdensome Rules


Chick-NewsRepresentative Glenn Thompson (R-PA) introduced a bill into the House intended to preemptively negate many of the burdensome requirements that the Administration intends to impose.  The bill addresses proposed rules under the Packers and Stockyards Act and will require the USDA to conduct cost-benefit analyses for intended rules. These include alleged unfair practices and undue preferences and to enhance transparency in contract growing.  The bill also will require the USDA to allow broiler plants to operate at line speeds in excess of current limitations.


Representative Thompson stated, “This bill will reverse many of the more harmful regulatory burdens spearheaded by this Administration, address escalating input costs and provide certainty to farmers, ranchers, agribusinesses and other entities across our food and agriculture supply chains.”
