Tennessee is a leading agricultural state, a major producer of cattle, poultry, soybeans, cotton, tobacco, and timber, among other goods.

Crop insurance and other regulations should benefit producers, consumers, and taxpayers alike. Also overseeing food assistance programs, my job is to make sure federal policies incentivize growth and jobs, not government dependence.
