From Senator Pat Toomey:
With more than 63,000 farms, agriculture is one of Pennsylvania’s largest industries and a major job creator. From chicken and dairy farms to mushroom and apple growers, our farmers put food on our tables and play a critical role in our statewide economy.
Their message has been clear and unambiguous — Washington’s deluge of new regulations is impeding the growth and success of our farms. All too often, the bureaucrats in Washington are oblivious to the real-world implications of their actions. There is a growing bipartisan consensus that we should be pushing back against these excesses wherever we can.
