Farming and ranching is a way of life that adds to the value of who we are as Kansans. Our farmers, ranchers and food processing industries combine to make agriculture our state’s top industry. Susan Wagle has always been a fierce advocate for the needs of agriculture in the state legislature, and she will stand up and fight for their interest in the U.S. Senate.
When the Obama EPA tried to stop farming through the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, Susan stood up and fought them. When the EPA tried to stop ranchers from burning prairie, Susan led the fight against their environmental overreach. Susan also took action to allow the state’s vital agriculture industry to have more flexibility transporting its products and move grain while protecting the safety of state highways. Susan also worked to pass a bill supported by the Kansas Farm Bureau that allows farmers and ranchers to secure health insurance policies outside the over-regulated and costly plans mandated under Obamacare.
In the U.S. Senate, Susan will fight against the extreme Green New Deal that will destroy our farming and ranching communities. She will also support President Trump’s efforts to rollback burdensome regulations that hinder farming and manufacturing in our state. And when it comes to standing up for our state’s farmers, ranchers and workers, Susan backs President Trump in his efforts to negotiate fairer trade deals. For years, China has been engaging in unfair trade practices and stealing American technology. President Trump’s efforts have proven effective as he was able to renegotiate NAFTA and create a deal (USMCA – United States Mexico and Canada Agreement) that will be good for American manufacturing and farming. China’s economy is weakening and while it is causing short term pains for our farmers, it will in the long run benefit them, our state and nation.
