U.S. Rep. Dusty Johnson discusses economic rescue package

The U.S. Senate late Wednesday passed a two-point-two-trillion dollar economic rescue package steering aid to businesses, workers and health care systems engulfed by the coronavirus pandemic.

As part of that massive economic rescue plan, there is also a proposal to expand reserves in the Commodity Credit Corporation.  South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson is behind that push.

Johnson says there is a strong ag coalition in Congress behind the plan.

Johnson says the price spread between the feedlot and the retail store needs to be investigated.

The 880-page measure is the largest economic relief bill in U.S. history. It is expected to be voted on by the U.S. House yet this week.
