Even as America’s producers and families grapple with the highest inflation in 40 years, skyrocketing energy costs, and a supply chain crisis, the Biden administration has continued to place needless red-tape and barriers in the way of farmers and ranchers. A new survey conducted in June shows that farmer sentiment has plummeted to the lowest reading since the 2020 COVID lockdown as production costs are expected to surge AT LEAST 30% this year.
In response to this economic crisis facing producers and Biden’s burdensome regulatory agenda, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and Republican Leader of the House Agriculture Committee GT Thompson sent a letter to President Biden, urging the administration to address farm input costs, halt changes to "Waters of the United States" (WOTUS), ensure the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) refocuses on sound science, and end onerous climate rules that are currently crushing the ability for America’s producers to meet global food demand.
