On Wednesday, The Defending Domestic Produce Production Act was reintroduced in the U.S. Senate as S. 2080 by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rick Scott (R-FL). The bill was reintroduced in the U.S. House as H.R. 3926 by Representatives Vern Buchanan (R-FL) and Al Lawson (D-FL). The bill includes 32 co-sponsors from Florida, Georgia, Michigan and South Carolina.

The Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association issued the following statement in support of the bill:

“The reintroduction of The Defending Domestic Produce Production Act is an important step in our continued efforts to seek immediate, viable solutions to restore market fairness for producers of fresh fruits and vegetables facing unfair competition from foreign suppliers. The bill would provide much-needed reform to U.S. trade laws for U.S. specialty crop growers seeking fair trade.

The Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association appreciates the continued leadership from the Florida congressional delegation on this issue, and we look forward to continuing our work with members of Congress to identify desperately needed trade mechanisms to level the playing field. Without relief, Florida growers and those throughout the country will continue to experience the harmful impacts of unfair trade practices and face an uncertain future.”
