Earl Blumenauer

Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) has represented Oregon's 3rd district since 1996. He is a senior member of the House Committee on Ways and Means. He is committed to reforming agriculture policy to improve access to safe, healthy food for all communities; protecting farmland; and increasing market opportunities for family farmers. In 2017, Blumenauer introduced an alternative farm bill, called the “Food and Farm Act,” that comprehensively advances reforms on four principles: 1) focusing resources on those who need it most; (2) fostering innovation; (3) encouraging investments in people and the planet; (4) ensuring access to healthy foods.
