Pfluger Introduces Bill to Cut Burdensome Regulations and Bring Down Costs for Farmers and Ranchers
WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. August Pfluger (TX-11) joined Glenn “GT” Thompson, the Republican Leader of the House Agriculture Committee, in introducing H.R. 8069, the Reducing Farm Input Costs and Barriers to Domestic Production Act. The bill requires the Biden Administration to reverse its regulatory barriers to domestic agriculture production and provide immediate relief to families across the country.
Rep. August Pfluger: “American families are being crushed by skyrocketing prices at the grocery store and beyond. Even still, the Biden Administration has failed to take action to increase American agriculture production and is instead choosing to impose additional regulations and tax increases on farmers and ranchers. This is unacceptable. It is time to cut the red tape and allow our producers to do what they do best—provide for the food security of our Nation.”
H.R. 8069 follows a letter sent by Rep. Pfluger, Mr. Thompson, Republican Leader McCarthy, Minority Whip Steve Scalise, Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, and 91 other Republicans. In the letter, the Members write that President Biden "has neglected to take serious action to increase American production," and by doing so, has limited "American farmers' ability to meet global food demand."
