Max Armstrong shares news of a new effort in Congress to regulate shipping with ag challenges in mind

Max Armstrong reports on the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 2021. It's new legislation that can help ag exporters facing rising costs to ship overseas including lack of containers, space and other factors. Rising online orders imported into the U.S. limit space on ships including shipping empty containers back to China – reducing space for ag products. Max reports on the bipartisan legislation and how it would address key issues.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
