American Agri-Women Honors House Ag Chairman Frank Lucas


American Agri-Women (AAW) recently award Rep. Frank Lucas of Oklahoma with its "Champion of Agriculture" award as part of its 2014 Fly-In to Washington, D.C. AAW is the nation's largest coalition of farm, ranch and agribusiness women. The award is presented annually to outstanding members of the U.S. Congress for their steadfast courage in upholding the ideals of American agriculture to their peers.


"As chair of the House Agriculture Committee, Lucas has supported such programs as voluntary conservation reserve programs, renewable energy and guarded against regulatory overreach," says AAW President Sue McCrum, who is part of a fifth generation family farm in Maine. "We are pleased to recognize him as a champion for farmers and ranchers and all they do to support our nation's food supply."


Lucas represents Oklahoma's third Congressional district, including all or portions of 32 counties in northern and western Oklahoma. Lucas serves as the chair of the House Committee on Agriculture. In addition, he serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. Lucas also serves as a member of the Republican Whip Team. Lucas' family has lived and farmed in Oklahoma for more than 100 years.


AAW also awarded Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota with its 2014 Champion of Agriculture award. Past recipients include Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, Rep. Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Rep. Dennis Cardoza of California, Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas, Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma.
