Promises about Agriculture on Walk-O-Meter

Review all tax policy to lighten burden on farmers

Will "conduct a comprehensive review of all tax policy that impacts farmers, eliminate tax barriers to production, and rein in government spending so that farmers can invest in their operations instead of sending more money to the state treasury."

Oppose efforts to weaken "Use Value" law as it relates to farms

Will "oppose any efforts to weaken Wisconsin’s 'Use Value' law that has kept property taxes on farms in check and helped family farms stay in business."

Assure at least one Natural Resources Board member has a farming background

Will "ensure that at least one of the members of the Natural Resources Board comes from an agricultural background."
