Family farms are an essential part of the Second District’s vibrant economy and sustainable communities. Our farmers help us put food on the table, power our vehicles, and create economic growth. My family has strong roots in farming, and I know how important it is for those voices to be heard in Washington.
As a member of the House Committee on Agriculture, I’m going to work tirelessly to ensure that farmers have access to reliable support from the federal government. One of my top priorities is to work with fellow Minnesota Representative and Committee Chairman Collin Peterson to make sure that all parts of the Farm Bill are implemented effectively--including a strong farm safety net and a fully funded Energy Title. As family farmers continue to be caught in the middle of trade disputes, I’ll remain dedicated to opening new markets for Minnesota farm products and providing immediate relief to farmers with help from the USDA.
