Washington, June 23, 2021
Today, Congressman Glenn 'GT' Thompson, Republican Leader of the House Agriculture Committee, outlined his guiding principles for disaster programs in a General Farm Commodities and Risk Management Subcommittee hearing entitled, "A Hearing to Review the Efficacy of the Farm Safety Net."
Mr. Thompson ended with a call for bipartisanship. "If Chairman Scott is willing to work within those three principles, I want to work with him to craft the best policy possible. No one member or single party has a monopoly on good ideas and working together to achieve a common goal will undoubtedly render a better outcome," he said.
