Congresswoman Shea-Porter Cosponsors Sugar Reform Act

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Yesterday, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter joined thirty-six of her colleagues in introducing the bipartisan "Sugar Reform Act." This bill removes unnecessary sugar subsidies that have kept sugar prices too high. Sugar subsidies have hurt consumers and driven manufacturing jobs out of the United States, which is why this reform is supported by a broad array of business, consumer advocacy, and environmental groups.

"In Congress, we have a responsibility to protect taxpayers by rooting out waste in government," said Congresswoman Shea-Porter. "Sugar subsidies are unnecessary. We can find significant savings by eliminating programs like this one."
