WORKING TO ENSURE AMERICAN FARMLAND BELONGS TO AMERICAN FARMERS
Last weekend, I joined Congressman Glenn Thompson from Pennsylvania and my House Republican colleagues in demanding a full report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office on foreign ownership of American farmland.
Attempts by the Chinese Communist Party and their allies to buy up millions of acres in fertile U.S. land is a direct threat to our national security, food supply, and economic might. With 900 million acres of farmland in the U.S., I’ll always work to ensure American farmland belongs to American farmers.
CALIFORNIA’S MISGUIDED 2035 BAN ON GAS-POWERED CARS
This week, I sent a letter to President Biden with my Republican colleagues urging his administration to reject California’s latest charade to impose their Green New Deal agenda on their residents and the nation.
From banning Iowa pork to gas-powered cars, California has demonstrated its complete lack of common sense. They could learn a thing or two from how we do things in Iowa.
MY WARNING ON WASTEFUL SPENDING
In February, I spoke on the House Floor as our debt surpassed $30 trillion. 8 months later, we’ve added another trillion dollars to our debt.
Unless we get serious about ending wasteful spending, American families and our economy will continue to suffer. I will continue to fight against the Biden Administration’s reckless spending agenda and work to make sure our family budgets aren’t crushed by inflation.
PREVENTING BIDEN FROM HIRING AN ARMY OF 87,000 NEW IRS AGENTS
President Biden’s plan to hire 87,000 new IRS agents is a disastrous policy that would raise taxes on middle-class families, cause unnecessary headaches for small business owners, and target honest, hardworking American taxpayers.
As a fierce advocate for taxpayers and job creators in Congress, I am proud to support the Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act, which is commonsense legislation to stop IRS overreach, halt tax hikes, and cut red tape for Iowa farmers, families, and main street businesses.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: U.S. TO SUPPLY JAPAN WITH BIOETHANOL
On Wednesday, we received the great news that the United States would export bioethanol to Japan, which is beneficial for American farmers, ethanol producers, and our economy. Iowa and the United States can power the world and deliver reliable, affordable energy for hundreds of millions of families if the Biden Administration lets us.
We must continue to work to become energy independent again, and ultimately energy exporters to the world.
We are government together, and I am here to serve you. Your thoughts, concerns, and comments are very important to me. Always feel free to call (202) 225-4426 or visit my website at feenstra.house.gov.
