Press Release

Today, President Donald Trump signed an executive order creating an executive branch task force to study the burdens the federal government imposes on farmers.

Congressman John Moolenaar released the following statement:

“Farmers are our best conservationists and they work hard to put food on the tables of families in our state and around the world. Overregulation has burdened agriculture and more can be done to help hardworking Michigan farmers like those in the milk and sugar industries who have been hurt by unfair trade practices. I hope this task force will find common-sense solutions to reform government and help a vital part of our state’s economy.”
