House members seek repeal of USDA's catfish inspection program
Friday June 29 2012
Some 23 House members on Wednesday wrote the chairman and ranking member of the House Agriculture Committee seeking repeal of USDA's catfish inspection program in the 2012 Farm Bill.
The Senate has already taken a step toward scrapping USDA's catfish program. Before giving final approval to its version of the 2012 Farm Bill on June 21, the Senate adopted an amendment introduced by Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and John Kerry (D-Mass.) to eliminate language from the 2008 Farm Bill that gave USDA authority to create a catfish inspection program (see FCN June 22, 2012, Page 1).
