Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner: “I think most farmers just want government to get out of the way.”

Ryan Quarles has served as Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner since 2016, but as a self-described “farm kid” and a ninth-generation Kentuckian, he knows most farmers just want government out of the way.

Here, Commissioner Quarles explains how every new regulation that passes—not to mention what’s on the horizon with the “Green New Deal”—adds to the cost and the challenge of agriculture in America. He outlines how regulations should be rooted in science, not emotion, and discusses how the REINS Act’s requirement that Congress approve costly new regulations would benefit American taxpayers.
