Agribusiness and family farmers are the lifeblood of our communities, providing food, long-term employment, new energy sources, and research and development opportunities. Yet, like other businesses, farmers face burdensome federal regulations, an overly complex tax code, export restrictions and even animal rights activists.

Like the rest of us, family farmers of the 5th District favor a strong private enterprise system, the preservation of property rights, a balanced federal budget, a constitutional approach to government, taking individual and personal responsibility, and resource conservation. I strongly share these views and values.

I will work to streamline the tax and regulatory obstacles stifling our farmers, encourage development of export markets, and advocate for the stable and wholesome business environment farmers deserve and the rest of us rely upon.
