Senate Ag Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow applauded the House of Representatives for passing President Biden’s Build Back Better Act.

“It’s all about lowering costs for American families and making critical investments to help us combat climate change,” Stabenow says, “especially in partnership with our farmers, ranchers, foresters, and rural communities. I’m fully committed to passing the Build Back Better Act in the Senate.”

Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says Americans need this important legislation to build up the middle-class and American competitiveness. “That will ensure that people in rural communities have a fair shot at opportunities and will secure our children’s future,” Vilsack says.

“This is our nation’s largest effort to combat climate change and includes a focus on climate-smart agriculture.” House Ag Committee Chair David Scott says the act includes a lot of his committee’s agricultural priorities.

“The investments are critical to helping American agriculture address and deal with the impact of climate change,” Scott says.
