After the House passed H.R. 2051 -- a bill aimed at the re-authorization of the Mandatory Price Reporting Act, the United States Grain Standards Act and the National Forest Foundation Act -- Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway (R-TX) released a statement praising the passage.

“I am thankful to my colleagues for getting our work done and passing this legislation before the Mandatory Price Reporting Act and the Grain Standards Act authorities are set to expire," Conaway said. "These bipartisan bills will provide certainty for farmers and ranchers, and prevent devastating impacts on our nation’s meat industries and grain exporters.

"Furthermore, the reauthorization of the National Forest Foundation Act will provide funds to the foundation to assist in restoring and enhancing our national forests and grasslands," Conaway said. "H.R. 2051 represents a bipartisan package and the collaborative work of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees, and I am proud to support this legislation. I urge the president to take immediate action and sign this bill into law.”
