Ohio has always been and still is one of the great agriculture states in our union. Agriculture is a vital part of the Ohio economy, contributing over 73 billion a year and one in six jobs. Supporting our agricultural industry is a key step in moving our state forward.

As your State Representative, Dave Burke will support the following:

*A fair and stable tax system that allows farmers to accurately project their future tax liabilities.
*Slowing urban sprawl and re-develop abandoned brown fields.
*Creating protected areas for agricultural land.
*Recognize farming as a goods producing industry. Polymers, bio-diesel, and ethanol are all new profitable directions for farming that should be supported with 3rd Frontier Funding. With proper research and development funding, farming will continue to expand beyond a food producing industry.
*Country of origin labeling that allows our farmers to compete on a level field.
