ARA Applauds House Action on Ocean Shipping Reform, Urges Senate to Follow Suit

Dec 09 2021

Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) President and CEO Daren Coppock issued the following statement following the U.S. House of Representatives' passage of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 2021:

"The overwhelming bipartisan support for this legislation should be a signal to the U.S. Senate that action also needs to be taken on their side swiftly to address practices currently damaging U.S. agricultural exports.

"Reducing backlogs and preventing unfair charges is critical to the ag industry and ARA will continue to work with its allies in Congress to urge action in a timely manner."
