Brewing Food Shortages Potentially Averted

(Washington D.C.) - The president has taken action to try and prevent a food shortage. Yesterday, President Trump signed an executive order allowing meat processing plants to stay open. The action followed estimates up to 80 percent of meat production could be reduced nationwide due to all of the processing plants closing due to coronavirus.


The president said his order keeps plants from being sued for staying open. Two of the shuttered plants processing millions of pounds of pork are here in Indiana. The action is good news for farmers so their hogs and other livestock can get to market instead of backing up on their farms.
