Congresswoman Martha Roby

Representing the 2nd District of Alabama

Agriculture

I am honored to serve a district in which agriculture is the largest employer -- responsible for more than 93,000 jobs and $11 billion in economic impact.

When it comes to farm policy, legislation does not just affect the farmer who puts the seed in the ground. We are affecting the ones who sell the seed, who build the equipment to cultivate and harvest the crop, and those who help process the goods to their final products. That farming dollar turns over many times, and there is an entire agriculture supply chain that is affected by farm policies set by Congress. When Washington politicians mess around with farm policy, they are messing around with the livelihoods of the people I represent.

In Congress, I am proud to be a strong voice for farmers and to represent their concerns. Our goal is to create a fiscally responsible framework of laws and programs that promote sustainable and profitable agriculture in Alabama while recognizing our current budget limitations.
