Right now Congress is deciding whether you get to know what’s in the food you eat and feed your family, or if that is a decision better left to them. If the version of the farm bill currently in the House Agriculture Committee becomes law, it could deny a state’s right to keep its people informed on what’s in their food and prevent you from having full control of your own food choices.
Here in Washington, we grow many foods such as corn, wheat, raspberries, asparagus, and potatoes, not to mention apples. This produce has created a robust export market, and it’s important that we protect it. We cannot cede that control to the federal government and strip away our ability to sell our products as we see fit.
You and I both know Washington, D.C. is broken. But in this Washington, we are working together to solve problems.
State Rep. Cary Condotta (R)
