Congressman Johnson talks about the Ocean Shipping Reform Act

WASHINGTON, D.C.(WNAX)- The Ocean Shipping Reform Act passed the US House last week. It would require carriers to meet minimum service standards and limit excess fees.

It was sponsored by South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson.

Johnson says the shippers have not been kind to ag exports.

Johnson says they want carriers to follow some pretty basic rules.

The bill now moves to the Senate.
