SD Senator Speaks Out on Policy Impacting Agriculture

Sen. John Thune (R-SD) spoke out on the Senate floor this week about Democrat policies that he says are harmful to farmers and ranchers.

“For starters, I’m worried that Democrats’ bill could mean the end of some family farms thanks to the bill’s expansion of the death tax,” said Thune. “Death should not be a taxable event.”

Sen. Thune also criticized Democrats for focusing on electric vehicles at the expense of biofuels when it comes to climate policy and manipulating farm policy.
