Cotton, Crawford Urge Passage of AIM Act Following Russian Cyberattack

Washington, D.C – Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and Representative Rick Crawford (R-Arkansas) released the following statement urging passage of their Agriculture Intelligence Measures (AIM) Act after JBS, the world’s largest meat processing company, suffered a cyberattack from a Russian gang: 

“Without a safe and secure agriculture supply chain, the United States can’t reliably feed its people. This attack proves that our enemies will target that supply chain given the chance. The Department of Agriculture needs to better leverage the assets of the Intelligence Community to protect U.S. agriculture against similar attacks. Our AIM Act will help protect American food and technology from sabotage and espionage, and we urge our colleagues to pass it immediately.”
