U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst said concerns about industry rules and regulations inspired her recent trip to northwest Iowa.

The Iowa Republican commented on the role of government regulations in business and the presidential election on Oct. 18 during a Spirit Lake stop at Rembrandt Foods, an egg producer and ingredient supplier. The visit was part of Ernst's 99-county tour across the state.

"We are at Rembrandt Foods right now and visiting about the implications of opening up the Farm Bill -- what rules and regulations might exist out there currently, what would hamper the industry," Ernst said. "But we also heard that when I was at Brown Fertilizer as well, over in Clay County, and the concerns that they have with over regulation coming from the federal government."
