Chairwoman Stabenow Applauds House Passage of the American Rescue Plan Act

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Chairwoman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, today applauded the passage of the food, agriculture, and rural provisions in the latest COVID-19 assistance package. 

“The House bill includes bold provisions to feed children and families, bolster the food supply chain, address discrimination for farmers of color, and strengthen rural healthcare providers,” said Chairwoman Stabenow. “We need to quickly pass the American Rescue Plan Act to address the urgent challenges facing our farmers, families, and rural communities. We can’t afford to wait any longer.”

Chairwoman Stabenow worked with House Agriculture Committee Chairman David Scott and House Education and Labor Committee Chairman Bobby Scott to secure the food, agriculture, and rural provisions in the bill.
