Fighting for Our Farmers

Statement

As some of you may know, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has proposed closing the St. Mary Parish Farm Services Agency -- a facility that does not use federal tax dollars for rent or utilities. As a former cane field worker and small business owner, I know that shutting down the St. Mary FSA will cost our farmers valuable time and money. So I have been doing all I can to make sure this service for our farmers is not lost, including having multiple calls with the USDA and sending a letter to Secretary Vilsack highlighting the USDA's misreading of the law, mistaken assumptions, and factual errors. If you would like to have your voices heard, you can call the USDA's Louisiana headquarters at 318-473-7721.
