Washington, D.C. – Today, House Agriculture Committee Republican Leader Glenn “GT” Thompson (PA-15) issued the following statement after Democrats released the Agriculture Committee’s portion of the FY21 budget reconciliation bill:

"Democrats unveiled their $16 billion bill which was drafted behind closed doors, placing secrecy over solutions. The package is neither timely, nor targeted, and will fall devastatingly short of delivering direct relief for the agriculture industry and farm families. I implore my colleagues across the aisle to work with us to more thoroughly review resources and needs to better provide support.”
