Agriculture plays a significant role in our economy at the local, state, and federal levels. I’m excited to share with you new legislation I introduced to strengthen Michigan’s economy while helping local farmers. Along the Lakeshore and across Southwest Michigan, we have the unique ability to grow a variety of specialty crops in addition to more traditional agriculture products. Whether it is apples, blueberries, cherries, grapes, peaches, or even Christmas trees, a natural disaster or infestation can do significant damage to family farms or larger growing operations.
