Grassley Bill To Rein In $8B In Unauthorized USDA Spending

Washington, DC — Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is introducing a bill today (Tuesday) which he says will help to rein in billions of dollars in Biden administration spending that’s siphoning money away from vital farm programs.

Grassley, a Republican, is calling it the U.S. Department of Agriculture Spending Accountability Act.

Grassley says the legislation is designed to stop the USDA from undermining the role of Congress in writing the upcoming Farm Bill.

He says the Biden administration is using this agricultural loophole as a blank check to pay for a host of unapproved programs, which Grassley says includes the president’s “environmental agenda.”

He says the bill would save eight billion dollars. Given the debt and deficit, Grassley says they “need to find savings in every nook and cranny of the Farm Bill.”
