Chairman David Scott Applauds Passage of Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act in House; Rebukes Republican Partisanship, Refusal to Help American Producers and Consumers

Chairman David Scott Applauds Passage of Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act in House; Rebukes Republican Partisanship, Refusal to Help American Producers and Consumers House Agriculture Committee Chairman David Scott issued the following statement applauding House passage of the Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act.

"As we all know, the last two years have led to drastic fluctuations in prices. Whether you look at the ongoing impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, or the global disruptions associated with Putin's war in Ukraine, American farmers, ranchers, and consumers have faced increasing costs on the farm, the grocery aisle, and every stop in between," said Chairman David Scott.

"The House-passed Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act tackles those price increases head on by assuring fair competition in the meat and poultry sectors, increasing options at the pump, and providing needed support for America's agricultural sector and food supply chain."

"I am extremely proud of the work of our House Agriculture Committee Members and the bipartisan support they have garnered for the bills included in this package," Chairman David Scott continued.

"A special thank you to my Democratic colleagues Representatives Cindy Axne, Angie Craig, Josh Harder, Ro Khanna, and Abigail Spanberger, along with my Republican colleagues Representatives Ashley Hinson and Dusty Johnson, for their hard work on their respective provisions in this legislation."

"The passage of the Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act is a true testament to the continued work ethic and bipartisanship that our Committee has championed, and a welcome relief for America's farmers, ranchers, and consumers," said Chairman David Scott.

"It is unfortunate that some of our Republican colleagues have chosen to politicize this moment and tarnish our bipartisan reputation rather than supporting a legislative package that delivers solutions from both Democrats and Republicans. The American people deserve better than that. We should not be playing politics with people's pocketbooks. I urge my friends in the Senate to act swiftly on this legislation," Chairman David Scott added.
