Sign our petition to fight government regulations limiting Virginia's farmers
As our first industry, agriculture helped chart the path to Virginia’s modern economy. We are blessed with fertile lands, and agriculture remains the largest industry in the Commonwealth, contributing mightily to our state and regional economies and our way of life. But our agricultural exports have fallen from their record highs in 2014 , a sign that we must redouble our efforts to grow and expand this vital industry.
As governor, Ed will be a champion for the agriculture, forestry and aquaculture industries. Ed will work to grow exports and open new markets for Virginia products. Working with other governors and stakeholders, he will lead a coalition to fight back against executive branch overreach like the EPA’s new burdensome water rule. Onerous federal actions, rules and regulations stifle growth and make it more difficult to maintain our proud history of farming in the Commonwealth.
Add your name if you agree with Ed that we must support Virginia’s farmers.
