Yesterday, House democrats “released an updated version of the Heroes Act it passed in May, reducing the price tag from more than $3 trillion to $2.2 trillion, but including an increase in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and farm aid provisions,” The Hagstrom Report writes. The bill includes funding for multiple NASDA priorities including $350 million for the Agricultural Quarantine Inspection Program and $20 million for the Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network. NASDA continues to press Congress to provide funding specifically for state agriculture departments’ response to COVID-19.
