Leadership of the Senate Agriculture Committee applaud the signing of the U.S. Grain Standards Reauthorization Act of 2020.
Chairman Pat Roberts, a Kansas Republican, and ranking Democrat Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, expressed their delight in a joint statement late last week.
The White House announced that President Donald Trump signed the bill Friday.
The U.S. Grain Standards Reauthorization Act of 2020 passed out of the Senate Agriculture Committee on June 24, the Senate on November 16, and the House of Representatives on December 2.
Roberts, who is retiring, stated, “We’re ending 2020 by delivering on our promise of certainty and predictability to the federal grain inspection system.”
Stabenow says, “This bipartisan reauthorization will continue our grain inspection system and protect the interests of American farmers.”
The legislation has wide industry support from national and state agriculture groups.
The reauthorization allows the Federal Grain Inspection Service to continue establishing official marketing standards for grains and oilseeds.
