In an effort to correct what they see as a U.S. Department of Agriculture oversight, U.S. senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), along with Congressmen Glenn “G.T.” Thompson (R-Pa.) and Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), have introduced the Forest Products Fairness Act of 2013.
The bill is intended to include forest products in the USDA’s Federal Biobased Products Preferred Procurement Program (FB4P).
