ASPB Signs Letter Supporting Increased Funding for Agriculture Appropriations Bills

ASPB is pleased to be a signee in support of increasing the funding allocation (302(b)) for the Agriculture Appropriations bills for fiscal year (FY) 2022.

America’s farmers, ranchers, foresters, and producers are at the fulcrum of multiple challenges:
the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to strengthen our interconnected food and agricultural systems, the inequity in those systems, climate change, and competition from other countries like China to feed the growing world population while still meeting our country’s nutritional needs.

We strongly urge you to increase the 302(a) allocations for Appropriations Committees in Fiscal Year 2022 and the 302(b) allocations for the respective Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittees in order to significantly increase discretionary funding for crucial U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) programs to help our farmers and rural America.
