Romney to Make Ag Policy Speech in Iowa Today

October 9, 2012 06:19 AM

Republican president nominee Mitt Romney is scheduled today to deliver remarks regarding farm and rural policy. Romney will appear at a farm near Van Meter, Iowa, southwest of Des Moines.

In an official statement before his remarks in Iowa, Romney said if elected, he would reverse President Obama’s "out-of-touch and counterproductive approach to rural America and instead champion the efforts of those who guarantee the safety and security of America’s food supply, produce economic prosperity, and help to feed the world."

The Romney ag and rural policy agenda includes:

  • Implement effective tax policies to support family farms and strong agribusiness;
  • Pursue trade policies that expand upon the success of the agriculture sector, not limit it;
  • Create a regulatory environment that is commonsense and cost-effective; and
  • Achieve energy independence on this continent by 2020.
