I am honored to represent the "Horse Capital of the World" and excited to announce that I have been named Chairman of the Congressional Horse Caucus.
Kentucky's signature horse industry provides Kentuckians with nearly 100,000 direct and indirect jobs and has a $4 billion economic impact on our state annually. As Chairman, I have already been hard at work recruiting new members to the caucus and planning meetings to educate Congress on issues impacting the horse industry. I am glad that Congressman Paul Tonko from New York will be my Co-Chair and appreciate his bipartisan leadership as we plan these events.
I commend Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY) for his leadership as Chairman and appreciate the opportunity to continue his work and promote the health of the horse industry.
