This week, TSCRA signed onto a letter by Congressman Mike Conaway, chairman of the House Committee on Agriculture. The letter urges House and Senate appropriations leaders to ensure farm and ranch families are a full part of Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts and the nation’s food supply is protected from future natural disasters. It also includes a proposed framework to address agricultural concerns in a supplemental appropriations bill.
Tax reform also continues to push forward in Washington. The bill is currently in conference committee, where differences between the House and Senate version are being reconciled. Details on the compromise legislation are expected as early as Friday. TSCRA Government and Public Affairs staff will continue to monitor the progress and engage key lawmakers as necessary.
