From the Key Takeaways: "[1] Current legislative proposals would use the coronavirus pandemic as a pretext to make permanent and sweeping changes to agricultural policy. [2] The proposals would inappropriately delegate congressional spending power to the Agriculture Secretary, including creating a massive USDA [U.S. Department of Agriculture] slush fund. [3] Congress should address the pandemic through temporary measures, not through new laws that would simply give away its constitutional spending power."
