Mr. OWENS. Mr. Chairman, I thank Mr. Grimm for mentioning the yogurt industry. That is very prominent in my district, and we supply milk to many of the yogurt plants. There is no question that Mr. Goodlatte's amendment would negatively impact that, whereas the Dairy Security Act would have a positive impact on our ability to supply milk to a growing industry that does, in fact, create jobs.

I rise in support of the Dairy Security Act and opposed to this amendment because it represents 4 years of bipartisan compromise worked out between Mr. Lucas and Mr. Peterson, and those are the kinds of activities we should be doing in this Congress.
