As I sit here writing this I am anticipating our impending snowfall. A check at 11:15 p.m., the white stuff was falling.

I know, I know, most don’t like to hear that four-letter word — S - N - O - W. It means shoveling and salting and vehicles getting stuck, difficult driving, longer commutes, etc.

I was talking to my mother a few days ago and she said something that struck fear in my heart. Yes, my gentle, loving mother said what no one wants to hear: “Ya know, it’s just three weeks until Christmas!”

In Ohio, one out of every seven jobs is connected to growing, processing, or distributing the food we eat and the products we use every day. In fact, agriculture and food contribute more than $107 billion to our state’s economy each year. That’s why, when I talk to farmers around the state, I hear how important the farm bill is and how the lack of a farm bill has led to uncertainty that makes it tougher for farmers to do their jobs. In fact, the lack of a farm bill has even affected farmer’s planting decisions. That is not good for Ohio farmers and it is not good for Ohioans.

The Thanksgiving leftovers are put away, the mountains of dishes washed, the football games taken in and the dog is snoring contentedly on the couch.

Another successful Thanksgiving meal with family.

Now it’s time to turn my attention to the bare Christmas tree.

Part of my job is to fight for American workers who are encountering unfair and illegal trade barriers in other countries. Even though those fights can sometimes go on for years, when we can create a level playing field for Ohioans and Ohio companies, everyone wins.

Ohio is home to countless innovative businesses, ranging from high tech job creators to advanced manufacturers and service providers. Since we compete in a global economy, many jobs at these Ohio companies depend on exporting products to customers around the world. In fact, over one quarter of Ohio manufacturing jobs are dependent on export sales.
