Minnesota Democrat and North Dakota Republican are seeking more information on a federal agency's efforts to curb carbon monoxide poisoning after a family of 7 died from a buildup of the odorless gas in their Moorhead home last month.
Sens. Amy Klobuchar and John Hoeven: "Together we are leading efforts to pass the bipartisan Promoting Rural Exports Act to create a Rural Export Center within the U.S. Commercial Service to help rural businesses export their products to new international markets."
The bill provides the Food and Drug Administration with authority to ensure that products with water buffalo are marketed as “water buffalo” so consumers do not think the product contains bison, which is commonly referred to as buffalo in the United States. Bison products would continue to be labeled as “bison” or “buffalo.”
The senior senators from the two states also said they were confident that Congress would approve a COVID-19 aid package before Christmas.
