  • On March 25, 2021

On March 17, ASTA joined more than 60 other state, regional and national agricultural associations offering ways to create a more environmentally responsible and economically viable freight transportation system.

“Agriculture can, and should, be part of the solution for addressing climate change and resiliency,” states the letter. “It must be emphasized that many aspects of the food and agriculture space are unique to the industry. We urge careful crafting of surface transportation policy to account for these aspects and avoid potential adverse consequences to U.S. agriculture.”
