Steve Verett from Plains Cotton Growers joined The Chad Hasty Show in Austin to talk about his organization, its goals and how it interacts with the state legislature.

Referencing the legislature in Austin, Verett said:

There's a lot of people we come across down here that don't even know we grow cotton in Texas. Not to mention that we're the largest cotton growing state in the U.S., and that agriculture in general in this state is still the second largest industry, only behind oil and gas. So when you look at really what churns and what makes Texas grow, it's the natural resource industry oil and gas, and agriculture.
