The legislation is the most significant effort to bring down costs and strengthen the middle class in generations
Washington, DC — On Friday, November 19, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will hold a media briefing to highlight how the Build Back Better Act, which was passed today by the U.S. House of Representatives, will support the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)’s mission of strengthening and supporting rural America and the middle class. The groundbreaking legislation is instrumental in the Biden-Harris Administration’s plan to rebuild the middle class and will set the United States on course to meet its climate goals, create millions of good-paying jobs, enable more Americans to join and remain in the labor force, and grow our economy from the bottom and middle out.
