WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Bryan Steil (WI-01) recently sent a letter to President Biden expressing serious concern about the record high cost of fertilizer impacting American farmers. The letter highlights U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Director Samantha Power’s comments saying we should “never let a good crisis go to waste.”
“Record high fertilizer costs are punching farmers in the face. Whether it is the rising cost of gas and now the spike in fertilizer costs, our farmers cannot keep up. We cannot continue to punish American producers with record high costs. It’s time for this Administration to change course, unleash American energy, and resolve these record price increases.
The letter was signed by Congressman Tom Tiffany (WI-07), Congressman Glenn Grothman (WI-06), Congressman Trent Kelly MS-01), Congresswoman Lisa McClain (MI-10), and Congresswoman Ann Wagner (MO-02).
