During a press call last week, Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., said a committee advanced two of his bills intended to improve prices and fairness for agricultural producers and consumers, putting them one step closer to a vote on the Senate floor.
Last Wednesday, the Senate Agriculture Committee favorably reported the bipartisan Meat Packing Special Investigator Act and the Cattle Price Discovery and Transparency Act, intended to combat consolidation in the meat industry, protect family farmers and ranchers, lower prices for consumers, and ensure America’s food security.
