My Position on Agriculture
Farmers are the backbone of Virginia’s Second Congressional District and our Commonwealth as a whole. Agriculture is Virginia’s largest private industry, providing an economic impact of $82.3 billion annually and more than 381,800 jobs for Virginians. In fact, Virginia’s agricultural production is one of the most diverse in the nation, with many Virginia commodities and products ranking in the top 10 among all U.S. states. I am proud to support policies in Congress that empower Virginia’s farmers and agriculture industry.
