Stefanik introduces what she says is solution to skyrocketing farm input costs

WASHINGTON, D.C.- North Country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) is co-sponsoring a measure that is aimed to address the skyrocketing farm input costs.

Known as the Reducing Farm Input Costs and Barriers to Domestic Production Act, Stefanik says the proposal would:

Provides relief from EPA’s unprecedented actions related to crop protection tools

Offers clarity related to WOTUS regulations

Rescinds the SEC’s harmful proposed rule on climate-related disclosures

Reinstates the 2020 NEPA streamlining

Requires an economic analysis on the costs and benefits of GIPSA rules

“As farmers in Upstate New York and the North Country face skyrocketing inflation and energy costs, Joe Biden’s burdensome regulatory agenda continues to hurt farmers and families,” Stefanik said.

“Our hardworking producers deserve better, which is why I am proud to join my Republican colleagues to introduce solutions to reverse Biden’s harmful regulatory burdens and reduce farm input costs. At a time when every family is forced to pay more for gas and groceries, this is a critical start to bring down the skyrocketing costs of goods.”

Earlier this week, Stefanik and her colleagues wrote to Biden that his administration "has neglected to take serious action to increase American production," and by doing so, has limited "American farmers' ability to meet global food demand."

In the letter, the lawmakers called on Biden to address his administration’s policies that have harmed America’s farmers and increased the price of food for consumers.
