Ashby Supports Family Farms By Opposing Devastating Majority Assembly Bill

Statement from Assemblyman Jake Ashby (R,C,I,Ref-Castleton) on bill creating unions on farms

“Our family farmers are the backbone of our upstate community and support one of the largest industries in our state. The majority of the Assembly Majority has entirely ignored that 98 percent of farms in our state are family owned and operated, not the industrial farms which they like to scare the public with. Small agricultural businesses will suffer because of the misguided legislation from downstate politicians; this will impact family farms, our communities, food supply and our state’s economic health.”
