Rep. Arrington Tours West Texas
Washington, August 17, 2023
West Texas – Yesterday, Rep. Jodey Arrington (TX-19) visited with his friends and fellow West Texans to discuss legislative opportunities in Washington, including the 2023 Farm Bill.
“I always enjoy visiting with the Lubbock Apartment Association. These folks have their finger on the pulse of the West Texas economy and understand how the Biden Administration’s failed tax-and-spend policies are hurting families in Lubbock and across the country.” said Rep. Arrington. “The LAA has been an important partner to me as I work to advance policies to create a fairer tax code, incentivize investment in Rural America, and empower American families to prosper.”
Next, Arrington had lunch with the Lubbock Executive Association, which includes small business owners and leaders.
Then, Arrington traveled to the Bar-G Feedyard in Summerfield, TX to view the company’s cattle feeding operation.
“Bar-G’s cattle feedyards are a taste of what the Food, Fuel, and Fiber Capital is all about,” said Rep. Arrington. “From bedtime stories of weathered cattlemen driving their herds across the dusty plains to the seductive smell of back yard barbeques, beef is deeply woven into the cultural and economic fabric of West Texas.”
Later that evening, Rep. Arrington hosted a Listening Session in Amarillo where the members discussed priorities for the 2023 Farm Bill.
