Federal Departments Address Supply Chain Issues

Several investments made across the country by Commerce, Agriculture, and Transportation Departments.

The Department of Commerce announced on Friday the multi-departmental effort to address the bottlenecked supply chain across the country in the aftermath of pandemic mitigation efforts. 

The Department of Commerce is currently advocating for returning semiconductor production to the United States as opposed to relying on overseas shipments.

The Department of Transportation has been working with the Port of Los Angeles to reduce shipment congestion on arrival. “We’ve got all hands on deck from the Administration.” said the Port’s Executive Director Gene Seroka.

The Department of Agriculture is also investing $3 billion in federal assistance across its jurisdiction. “The coronavirus pandemic has impacted every stage of our food supply chain, from commodity production through processing and delivery,” Secretary Vilsack said in a statement. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Raimondo as the Department of Commerce advocates for domestic production.
  • That Secretary Buttigieg and the Department of Transportation’s efforts would be effective in relieving supply chain bottlenecks.
  • For Secretary Vilsack as the USDA invests in supporting the food supply chain.
