On Wednesday, Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.) highlighted two agricultural related provisions contained in the Senate Continuing Resolution (CR) that is currently under debate this week.
A news release yesterday from Sen. Tester’s office indicated that, “Tester slammed the inclusion of two provisions that will hurt family farmers and ranchers while benefiting large meatpacking corporations and companies that develop genetically-modified crops. Tester said backroom deals replaced open government and vowed to strip the provisions from the bill.”
