Ensuring the Success of Idaho Agriculture
Idaho’s past, present, and future are tied to agriculture. Generations of farmers and ranchers have helped to shape our culture, and agriculture continues to be one of the largest sectors of our state’s economy. As your representative in Congress, I have a strong responsibility to ensure that Idaho’s agriculture sector can continue to thrive in the future.
We depend on agriculture to feed and clothe our nation and to help meet the needs of many around the world. In order to do so, farmers and ranchers are continually working to ensure that their operations are sustainable and efficient. A wide variety of issues, including transportation, trade agreements, taxes, energy, and environmental issues, directly impact the cost of production, and I believe that Congress should carefully consider the impact of legislation on our farmers and ranchers, working to ensure that they have the tools they need to succeed. As a member of the House Potato Caucus, the House Sugar Caucus, and the Congressional Dairy Caucus, I will continue to look out for the interests of Idaho agriculture.
