The Biden administration is working on addressing supply chain disruptions, including agriculture. The Port of Los Angeles will be operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told the Red River Farm Network this is focused on getting more people and work done at the ports. “We, of course, are also working in an effort to determine how to best use resources we’ve recently announced to provide assistance.” Vilsack says U.S. infrastructure also needs an update. “It’s important to make sure we take this opportunity to modernize infrastructure so we’re in a position to have a much more resilient system than we have today.”
