U.S. Senator Pat Roberts, R-Kan., Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, yesterday was pleased to announce House passage of H.R. 2051, the Agriculture Reauthorizations Act of 2015.
The bipartisan legislation, which reauthorizes Mandatory Price Reporting (MPR), the National Forest Foundation Act and the U.S. Grain Standards Act (USGSA), passed the Senate Sept. 21. For more information on the bill, click here.
“We cleared the final hurdle,” said Chairman Roberts. “Reauthorizing three programs in one bipartisan bill is no small feat, but when our agriculture producers ask for certainty and transparency, that’s what they’ll get.”
“I’d like to thank my colleagues in Congress for working together to get this legislation across the finish line – Ranking Member Senator Debbie Stabenow and our colleagues across the Capitol, House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway and Ranking Member Collin Peterson.”
H.R. 2051 now heads to President Obama’s desk to be signed into law.
