Georgia leads the nation in production of everything from chickens to peanuts to our world famous peaches. We need leaders like Reverend Warnock who understand the needs of farmers and fight on their behalf in Washington. Warnock believes we need consistent policies that promote equity and accommodate the diversity of our state’s products and the uncertainty our farmers deal with.
As one of the most diverse states in the nation, Georgia is home to a significant number of African-American farmers who are critical to our agricultural economy. Reverend Warnock believes we should level the playing field for Black and minority farmers by expanding access to capital, equipment, and financial resources. He is working to end discriminatory policies at the federal level that limit opportunity.
In the Senate, Reverend Warnock has fought for the ag community by
- Fighting to include federal debt forgiveness for all of Georgia’s small farmers (Relief for Small Farmers Act) in reconciliation
- Joining with House Agriculture Committee Chairmen Sanford Bishop and Rep. David Scott to push the USDA to assist cotton merchandisers to recover COVID-19 losses
- Leading a bipartisan effort with Senator Tommy Tuberville calling the USDA and the U.S. Trade Representative to work together to ease European Union non-tariff trade barriers on our peanut farmers
- Partnering with Senator Bill Cassidy to introduce the Disaster Reforestation Act to help our forest landowners recover after a natural disaster
