There are almost 20,000 farms in Kentucky’s Second District, and I am proud to represent Kentucky’s farmers in Congress. I was proud to support the 5-year reauthorization of the most recent Farm Bill. The Farm Bill extends farm support programs, improves crop insurance, promotes agricultural exports and the opening of new markets for Kentucky’s farmers. It also provides resources to expand rural broadband development and to fight our nation’s ongoing opioid crisis. I also supported COVID-19-related assistance to farmers and producers in COVID-19 relief packages.

I strongly oppose Democrat policies like the methane tax, or proposed changes to the current stepped-up basis and capital gains tax that could force families to sell their farms. I will continue to stand up for Kentucky’s farmers and producers to ensure their voice is heard in Congress.
