The U.S. House of Representatives approved The Mandatory Price Reporting Act of 2010 (S. 3656) and The Veterinary Services Investment Act (H.R. 3519).
The Mandatory Price Reporting Act of 2010 will reauthorise mandatory price reporting programs run by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for five years. The legislation requires livestock sales information to be reported and published in a timely fashion. The Act now goes to the President’s desk for his signature.
The House also approved the Veterinary Services Investment Act, which would establish a competitive grant program at USDA to support efforts to increase access to veterinary care in underserved areas. The Veterinary Services Investment Act now moves to the Senate for consideration.
