BREAKING: Hinson Endorsed by Iowa Farm Bureau

Marion, IA – Today, the Iowa Farm Bureau endorsed Congresswoman Ashley Hinson for re-election, naming her a Friend of Agriculture.

“Iowa farmers work 24/7, 365 days a year to feed and fuel the world, and it is my honor to be their voice in Washington. Farmers don’t have time for partisan games, and in Congress, I’ve put politics aside to deliver for Iowa agriculture,” said Congresswoman Ashley Hinson. “From championing our biofuels industry, to empowering farmers with conservation technology and keeping federal regulators off of Iowa farms – I will always fight for our Iowa farmers and our rural economy.”

“With one in every five Iowans employed in agriculture and ag-related industries, we must elect Friend of Agriculture candidates who will continue to be champions for agriculture and the hard-working Iowa families who make their living feeding and fueling the world,” – Boone County farmer and IFBF PAC Chair, Kriss Haglund.


Ashley has been a relentless advocate for Iowa agriculture in Congress, working across the aisle to deliver for Iowa farmers. Ashley isn’t afraid to go against her party to do what is right for Iowa agriculture. She was one of just seven Republicans to vote for the Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act, a legislative package that included Hinson’s bipartisan PRECISE Act and bipartisan legislation she championed to allow for the sale of E15 year-round.

Ashley has championed Iowa’s biofuels industry and worked across the aisle on legislation to expand the use of biofuels nationwide.

  • Amid fuel shortages and rising gas prices, Hinson called for a nationwide waiver to expand the use of biofuels.

  • Hinson helped lead the bipartisan Year-Round Fuel Choice Act to allow the sale of E-15 year-round and worked to get this legislation passed out of the House.

  • Hinson helped lead the bipartisan Home Front Energy Independence Act to replace foreign oil sources with Iowa biofuels.

Ashley has fought back against government overreaches on Iowa farms.

  • Ashley introduced the EATS Act to prevent California from regulating how Iowa farmers raise products.

  • Ashley has fought against the Biden Administration’s proposed return to Obama-era WOTUS regulations.

Ashley has worked across the aisle to empower farmers with conservation tools.

  • Ashley introduced the bipartisan PRECISE Act, legislation that allows farmers to access precision agriculture technology more easily. This legislation passed the House.

  • Ashley introduced the bipartisan DALCI 2.0 Act to empower farmers and landowners to preserve Iowa’s Driftless Area.

Ashley has brought home critical infrastructure investments for Iowa farmers, including $45.1 million in FY22 appropriations legislation for the Navigation and Ecosystem Sustainability Program to upgrade locks and dams along the Upper Mississippi River.
