Grassley calls GIPSA rider in House bill ‘ill-advised’
By Ken Anderson
The House and Senate are currently advancing their versions of the fiscal 2015 Ag Appropriations bills. Both bills are ready for floor debate in each chamber.
The House bill contains a policy rider—known as the GIPSA rider—which opponents say would limit the rulemaking authority of the Secretary of Agriculture under the Packers and Stockyards Act.
In a conference call Tuesday morning with ag reporters, Iowa Senator Charles Grassley called the GIPSA rider in the House bill “ill-advised”.
