U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, released his opening remarks from the Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy, Poultry, Local Food Systems, and Food Safety and Security hearing entitled “Milk Pricing: Areas of Improvement and Reform.”
Below is an excerpt:
“Apparently $28 billion worth of conservation and other spending will be added later, perhaps on the House floor.
“The bill did however identify something called the Civilian Climate Corps, which I think is better described as the climate police.
“We have no information on what the climate police may be, what its purpose is, how it will work, why it is needed, or any other answers to the most fundamental questions American taxpayers expect this body to know and deliberate on before spending trillions of dollars.
“We do know that President Biden’s so called “American Jobs Plan” proposes mobilizing the next generation of resilience workers to advance environmental justice.
“We also know that in this bill, Democrats are directing the climate police to operate on federal forests and private land. That’s the last thing farmers and ranchers need.”
