ARA Applauds Committee Vote Passing Supply Chain Bills

The Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) President & CEO Daren Coppock released the following statement in support of the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure’s vote yesterday to pass bills aimed at addressing ongoing supply chain challenges:

“The bills passed through Committee will bring economic and environmental benefits to ag retailers who depend on rail, shipping and truck transportation to continue operating in support of our nation’s farmers.

“The success of the ag retail industry is dependent on a strong and efficient supply chain, which is why the issue of transportation and supply chain solutions has been a top priority for ARA.”

ARA co-signed an Agricultural Transportation Working Group letter sent to the House Committee members on May 19 that voiced support for the bills. 

The full legislative text and a link to the recording of the markup will be posted here. The Committee announcement of the vote can be found here.
