SPENDING DEAL SEEKS DATA ON USDA RELOCATION PLAN –

SPENDING DEAL SEEKS DATA ON USDA RELOCATION PLAN – A House-Senate agreement on USDA’s fiscal 2019 budget includes nonbinding language that raises concerns about the cost of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue’s plan to move the Economic Research Service (ERS) and National Institute of Food and Agriculture out of the nation’s capital. The report directs Perdue to provide estimates of costs and benefits of the plan and to “delay indefinitely” his plan to pull ERS out from under the undersecretary and put it in the Office of Chief Economist, part of the secretary’s office.
