Congressman Jason Smith Celebrates Right to Farm Victory
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO – Today, Congressman Jason Smith (R-MO) celebrated the passage of Amendment 1, the Right to Farm. Before his election to the United States House of Representatives in June 2013, Smith was the original sponsor of the Right to Farm legislation in the Missouri General Assembly.
“I couldn’t be happier with the success of the Right to Farm Amendment. Missouri farmers now have protection from outside interest groups written into our state constitution,” said Smith. “When I proposed the Amendment in the Missouri House I knew it would be a tough fight, but as a farmer I knew what was at stake. This is a proud moment for me and a victory for all Missourians.”
