    Agriculture

    Indiana Senate Democrats understand the importance of agriculture to our state's economy, culture and future. Senate Democrats believe in finding new ways to support this important Hoosier industry and the families who work on Indiana's farmland.

    Hoosier farmers feed the world, but the world is changing. Rural access to new telecommunication services and consumer-friendly energy sources help Hoosiers living in rural areas compete on a global stage.

    Indiana Senate Democrats support: 

      • Increasing funding for the maintenance of local and rural infrastructure
      • Continuing to invest in technology, research, and training for Hoosier farmers
      • Increasing the use of alternative energy sources
      • Expanding the availability of broadband access in rural communities
      • Encouraging and investing in the next generation of Hoosier farmers
      • Promoting Indiana agricultural products through the use of aggressive sales and marketing efforts
