Agriculture

We need a forward looking agriculture policy that is both fiscally responsible with hard working American taxpayers' money and accountable to our country's need to level the playing field for American agricultural products in the global marketplace. California's 23rd Congressional District represents America's fruit, vegetable, and dairy “breadbasket” for our state, country, and even the world, producing many of the healthy produce and dairy products that contribute to a healthy diet.  As a former member of the House Agriculture Committee, I continue to work hard to promote the diverse agriculture products that our hardworking farmers, ranchers, and workers grow, along with opening overseas markets to give the world the opportunity to know that "Californian Grown" means high-quality agriculture products.  While labor and water regulations and policy remain important concerns to our local agriculture, we must also remain cognizant and support research against different plant and animal diseases and pests that continue to pose a threat to this multi-billion dollar industry.
