On Tuesday, Congressman Andy Biggs and more than 10 of his House of Representatives colleagues sent letters to U.S. Department of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, U.S. Department of Interior Secretary Debra Haaland, and U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai regarding the looming global food supply crisis and the Biden Administration’s contribution to it through its failing energy and economic policies.
“The Biden Administration’s war on domestic energy production is contributing to the unacceptable rise in food and fertilizer prices throughout America and the world,” said Congressman Andy Biggs. “There are steps that the Biden Administration must take to lower these costs and ensure our global markets are functioning correctly.
“It is imperative to increase and protect domestic grain and fertilizer production in our country—essential commodities that serve as the foundation for a robust food supply.
“These three officials must provide us with an immediate and comprehensive breakdown of how they intend to abrogate its self-inflicted food supply crisis. The American public cannot tolerate yet another Biden Administration crisis.”
