WASHINGTON (July 29, 2022) – Today, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) responded to the release of House Agriculture Committee Chairman David Scott’s (D-GA) Small Family Farmer and Rancher Relief Act.
“NCBA is committed to working with the House Agriculture Committee to protect our most vulnerable producers, and we appreciate the Chairman's attention on this important issue,” said NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Ethan Lane. “Unfortunately, H.R. 8590, the Small Family Farmer and Rancher Relief Act, as introduced prompts more questions than it provides answers. While collectively we would have preferred to provide input into the drafting of this legislation, we look forward to working with our partners in the livestock community to address the blind spots in this proposal.”
NCBA is the nation’s oldest and largest national trade association representing cattle producers.
