According to the Idaho Department of Agriculture, agriculture is the single largest contributor to Idaho's economy, making up 20% of Idaho’s GDP each year. The importance of this sector to our state - and our country - is belied by the fact that Washington, DC often ignores their concerns.
During my time in Washington, D.C. I have been a strong advocate for Idaho’s ranchers, farmers, anglers, and the countless jobs that make up our agribusiness sector. That includes engaging with federal agencies on behalf of state and local stakeholders, championing legislation that ensures sustainable management of our resources, and fighting for industries hampered by unstable national and global markets.

Would require that non-dairy products made from nuts, seeds, plants, and algae no longer be confusingly labeled with dairy terms like milk, yogurt, and cheese.
