1998 Ron Paul 113:1
Mr. PAUL. Mr. Speaker, the Fayette County 4-H will hold their annual banquet on Sunday, October 11, 1998. This is a very important event Mr. Speaker, as it recognizes 90 years of 4-H in Texas. For those of us who were raised on farms and who represent agricultural communities it is well known how important an organization 4-H truly is.

1998 Ron Paul 113:2
Head, Hand, Hearts and Health, these are the “4-H’s” and they are truly indicative of what this organization is all about. One of the primary missions that this organization undertakes is agricultural education. Earlier this year I introduced a bill which would exempt the sale of livestock by those involved in educational activities such as FFA and 4-H from federal income taxation. By making young men and women who participate in these activities hire a group of tax accountants and attorneys we are sending the wrong message. Young people who sell livestock at county fairs and the like should be rewarded for taking self initiative and allowed to keep the money they’ve earned to help pay for their education or to re-invest in other animals to raise. My bill would eliminate the current policy of forcing these youngsters to visit the tax man.

1998 Ron Paul 113:3
Mr. Speaker, I want to commend the young people of Fayette County’s 4-H, as well as their parents and sponsors, for continuing the fine traditions of this truly great organization.
