Ag Committee members want the money flowing from the Inflation Reduction Act to energy programs
Some members of the House Ag Committee are making their case to keep energy program spending in the Farm Bill.
Democrats have asked Chair GT Thompson and Ranking Member David Scott to keep the money flowing from the Inflation Reduction Act. They say there is strong demand for programs like PACE, New ERA, and REAP. They note New ERA saw more than $43 billion in requests, with PACE requests coming in at $12 billion. They want to see that spending stay intact in the new Farm Bill.
Lawmakers have extended the 2018 legislation until next September.
