Congressman Thompson optimistic covid relief will be passed soon
Congressman Glenn GT Thompson, incoming GOP leader of the House Ag Committee, says it’s critical that lawmakers pass a coronavirus relief bill soon.
“Our farmers and ranchers are still needing assistance and so are our agriculture businesses,” he says. “That’s why it’s so important that, if not within days, within the week that we pass a COVID-19 relief act that offers support to farmers and ranchers and neighbors in need that are struggling from a nutritional perspective.”
He tells Brownfield he is optimistic…“I’m planning on sticking around through the weekend and I’m hoping we’ll get this done. Leadership on both sides of the aisle are looking at tying the next covid relief package in with the federal funding.”
The Pennsylvania Republican was elected by his colleagues to serve as Ranking member of the House A Committee in the 117th Congress.
