Congresswoman Ashley Hinson visits Jesup farm for roundtable discussion
Congresswoman Ashley Hinson held a roundtable with Iowa Farm Bureau leaders at the Ben Bader farm in rural Jesup on August 30.

Hinson wanted to “hear more about issues that are impacting our farmers and producers.”

The First District Representative in the U.S. Congress said, “We talked a lot about recovery from the derecho and crop damage from recent storms, as well as fears about a return to WOTUS regulations.

“We also need to keep the pressure on the Administration to maintain the integrity of the renewable fuel standard and keep their promises to our biofuel producers,” she said.

“Our ag community is rightly concerned about bureaucrats in Washington who have never stepped foot on a farm making policy decisions that make it harder for them to feed and fuel the world,” Congresswoman Hinson concluded.

Hinson has been outspoken about the need to maintain the integrity of the Renewable Fuel Standard and is standing up for Iowa’s biofuel industry in Washington.
