U.S. House passes precision ag bill
The U.S. House recently passed a bill that will help improve efficiency for farmers and ranchers.
The Precision Agriculture Satellite Connectivity Act, sponsored by Rep. Bob Latta (R-OH), requires the Federal Communications Commission to review its current satellite rules.
While the Senate is in session this week, the House is not. Rep. Latta has been spending time in his district, with broadband connectivity on his agenda, according to Brownfield Ag News.
As Chair of @HouseCommerce’s Communications & Tech. Subcmte, it’s crucial to hear directly from those who supply and serve #OH5 communities with reliable broadband internet. This includes Bascom Communications, which I had the opportunity to visit with this week. pic.twitter.com/PaD62E0Zni— U.S. Rep. Bob Latta (@boblatta) May 2, 2023
Rep. Latta said he is optimistic the bill will receive bipartisan support in the Senate.
