Senators Reintroduce “Protect Farmers from the SEC Act” to Shield Farmers from Potential Emissions Disclosure Requirements

The “Protect Farmers from the SEC Act” would shelter agricultural facilities from having to report their emissions under a proposed Securities and Exchange Commission rule. The bill was introduced by Senators John Boozman and Mike Braun, and its companion bill was introduced by Representative Frank Lucas. Bill text and committee assignments are not yet publicly available but are likely to be similar to the identically named bill introduced in the previous legislative session.
