The Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee today approved by voice vote the Livestock Mandatory Price Reporting Act, S.3656.  The bill will amend the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 to require the creation of an electronic price reporting program for dairy products and extend the authority for the Livestock Mandatory Price Reporting program.  The next step for the bill will be for it to be considered by the full Senate.
