I would like to express my thanks to U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis for his support on the recent tax reform bill. This legislation will bolster the farm economy with several positive provisions for family farmers, as the ag industry is now nearly five years into a dramatic slowdown in the U.S. This bill does not resolve the whole problem but does address several encumbrances burdening farmers today.
Farmers like myself will be able to re-invest more of our income back into the farm. This overhaul will also help promote the next generation of family farmers by providing estate tax relief. I appreciate Davis’ yes vote on this bill and his support for agriculture.
