Agriculture

The Agriculture industry is the lifeblood of our economy and the breadbasket of our nation.

A strong voice for West Texas in Washington. Texas’ 19th Congressional District is home to more than 14 million acres of farmland, and produces more cotton than any other congressional district in the country. Altogether, the nine county region around Lubbock produces nearly ⅓ of the world’s cotton supply! The cotton produced here in West Texas is crucial to our local, state, and national economies. Additionally, peanuts, grain, sorghum, beef, dairy, and wine are all produced in District 19 – creating over $12 billion in agriculture related revenue. As a member of the House Agriculture Committee, I’m committed to working alongside Chairman Conaway as we fight to represent these interests in our nation’s capital.

Agriculture contributes to our national security. Agriculture production not only provides 24 million jobs nationwide, it feeds and clothes our people. The food and fiber created in farming communities secures our independence, ensuring we don’t have to rely on foreign entities for our goods. We need to remind our nation’s leaders that agriculture is not just as a rural issue, it is a national security issue.
