Thompson leads GOP efforts to support American agriculture production

U.S. Rep. Glenn “GT” Thompson (R-PA) on Wednesday led 31 of his Republican colleagues in introducing legislation that would require the Biden administration to reverse its regulatory agenda, which they say has created barriers for domestic agriculture production. 

Rep. Thompson sponsored the Reducing Farm Input Costs and Barriers to Domestic Production Act, H.R. 8069, which aims to end regulatory overreach, address rising inflation and input costs, and provide certainty to American farmers and ranchers, according to a bill summary provided by the congressman’s staff.


H.R. 8069 has garnered 31 GOP original cosponsors, including U.S. Reps. Rodney Davis (R-IL), Blake Moore (R-UT), Dan Newhouse (R-WA), Don Bacon (R-NE), Mike Bost (R-IL), Frank Lucas (R-OK), Dusty Johnson (R-SD), and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA).
