Agriculture is one of our core industries in the first district. Farmers and ranchers who contribute to our nation’s food supply and economy depend on trade to provide them access to additional markets. As many of you know, I have been a strong advocate for opening up agricultural trade with Cuba. Agriculture trade with other countries will strengthen our agriculture economy and will have a positive impact for many farming regions within the U.S.


Arkansas holds the second highest prescription rate of opioids in the U.S., with an average of 114 pills prescribed per patient, and when the supply finally runs out, patients are turning to worse drugs, like fentanyl or heroin. Rural America suffers far worse than urban areas because resources are scarcer, and many communities lack access to pain treatment alternatives, like physical therapy. My bill, the Addiction Recovery Communities Act, prioritizes funding for projects to curb addiction and promote recovery in rural Arkansas. I hope that my message today will help raise awareness of this problem in our communities. Those suffering from addiction need to understand that they are worth more and that everyone is capable of recovery.


It’s easy to be discouraged about the state of some of our east Arkansas communities. From poor job opportunities to drug addiction and poverty, we’ve got our fair share of issues. But what I love about east Arkansas people is their dedication to each other and to their communities. My father grew up on a farm in the bootheel in Missouri and my granddad was born in Leachville, Ark.; they both would teach me that a good work ethic and respect for your neighbors and family comes first. Instead of allowing these challenges to define our communities, this week I’ll be talking about some of those problems and what we can do, both at the federal and local level, to make east Arkansas an even better place to live and work.
