Congressman Jason Smith Holds Farmhall in Scott County

Show Me Times, August 7, 2018

As a 4th generation family farm owner myself, I love meeting with the farmers and families of southern Missouri. In August I visited 30 different agricultural operations in 30 different counties. We truly have the most diverse agricultural district found anywhere in the country. I was honored to be able to host several “Farm-hall” type meetings – open forums with Missouri farmers to hear about the latest challenges they are facing and ways I can help. It was during these visits a few years ago that I started a running list of the devastating and intrusive impact Washington regulations written by un-elected bureaucrats were having on Missouri farmers. Before he even took office, I shared that list with President Trump and his team. Together President Trump and I have now repealed over 1000 burdensome regulations with lifetime costs in excess of $33 billion. Our work is just getting started.

“This isn’t an attack on the sick...it’s an expansion of freedom.” Healthcare is personal, and you deserve a personal choice in the matter. GOP removed penalizing you for buying a product you don’t want: a win in my book. https://t.co/1Rb2rFfg8Y

One third of the federal workforce are veterans. They’re not receiving paychecks, and they deserve better. Democrats: come to the negotiating table. https://t.co/d5lw1nQfqJ
