US: Congressional decisions benefit Red River Valley and other potato industry segments

Along with other sectors of the national potato industry, Red River Valley grower-shippers will benefit from the U.S. Senate passing the $1.1 trillion Consolidated & Further Continuing Appropriations Act, which is part of the 2015 spending bill. Ted Kreis, marketing director of the Northern Plains Potato Growers Association, credits the lobbying work of the National Potato Council staff in Washington, DC, for encouraging these Federal changes. The new spending omnibus has a provision that would make fresh white potatoes eligible for purchase with WIC vouchers — available to low-income women and children at critical stages of development — just like all other fresh fruits and vegetables.
