Senator David Perdue Comments On Rollback Of Obama-Era Agriculture Rules

“President Trump’s rollback of these unnecessary rules is a win for Georgia’s agriculture industry.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, comments on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s rollback of two Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) rules:

“President Trump’s rollback of these unnecessary rules is a win for Georgia’s agriculture industry. This action also sends a clear signal that President Trump and Secretary Perdue are serious about undoing Obama-era regulations that place an undue burden on rural America. I applaud the Trump Administration for taking the concerns of rural America seriously by getting big government out of their way. The last thing that Georgia’s agriculture industry needs is more bureaucracy.”
