Chairman David Scott Applauds Passage of Omnibus Spending Bill

WASHINGTON – Below is a statement from Chairman David Scott on Congressional passage of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023:

“I am pleased that both the House and the Senate have been able to negotiate and pass the Fiscal Year 2023 appropriations bill ahead of the 118th Congress. It was a pleasure to have worked alongside my House and Senate Agriculture Committee colleagues in order to ensure additional legislative priorities such as the Growing Climate Solutions Act, the SUSTAINS Act, and the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2022 (PRIA V) were included within these provisions to fund the government,” said Chairman David Scott.

“Additionally, I am pleased that the agreement includes the $100 million in critical funding to help alleviate some of the losses experienced by cotton merchandisers that I advocated for and worked hard to include. I would also like to thank the Senate Agriculture Committee and the House Education and Labor Committee for their important work to establish a permanent Summer EBT program for eligible children,” Chairman David Scott continued.

“Each of these provisions included in the omnibus are so vitally important to ensuring the wellbeing of the American people. Today’s passage of the omnibus spending bill will ensure that our American agricultural security will remain intact,” Chairman David Scott added.
