San Antonio, TX – On the heels of supporting legislation to repeal the Death Tax in Congress, U.S. Representative Will Hurd met with farmers from Uvalde, Medina and Frio counties this morning. Several issues were brought up at the meeting, including the Death Tax repeal, navigable waters rules, the Endangered Species Act and branched broomrape control.

“The folks running these family farms in the 23rd Congressional District of Texas work hard and make so many sacrifices to not just put food on their table, but on ours as well. The are constantly fighting battles with federal bureaucracies to keep their farms operating. I’m going to keep fighting alongside them."

The breakfast was coordinated by Ronnie Muennink, a Hondo farmer who is the Texas Farm Bureau State Director.
