11 - What is the Organic Agriculture Research Act?
. 2436, the Organic Agriculture Research Act of 2017, was introduced by Representative Chellie Pingree (D-ME) with cosponsors Representative Dan Newhouse (R-WA), and Jimmy Panetta (D-CA). This bipartisan legislation would reauthorize and increase funds for USDA's Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative (OREI), the flagship federal science program for organic farming. OREI currently funds $20M per year in competitive grants for organic research, extension and education. HR2436 would increase the funding to $50M per year. By reaching that level of funding the program acquires "baseline" status and is presumed to be a permanent part of the Farm Bill's Research Title.
