Tuesday, the U.S. Senate passed the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), which includes investments of importance to many areas of agriculture. One group pleased to see this passage is the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA). And during this week’s Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show in Nashville, Tennessee, NCBA Sr. Executive Director of Government Affairs, Danielle Beck, explained to Southeast AgNet’s Randall Weiseman why it will take a bit more of an effort to get it passed in the U.S. House.
NCBA notes they have long advocated for sound tax policy for rural America and is working on both sides of the aisle to ensure that members of Congress understand the needs of cattle producers in regard to tax policy.
The Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show runs through Thursday.
