Plains Cotton Growers Support Chairman Conaway's Defense of Ag Spending During Budget HearingThu, 29 Jun 2017 09:44:18 CDT
Plains Cotton Growers, Inc., commends House Ag Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R-Midland) for his unwavering support of farmers across the nation, most recently defending agriculture during budget negotiations.
“Growers in the PCG service area are fortunate to have excellent Congressional representation, including and especially Chairman Conaway,” PCG President Johnie Reed, a cotton grower from Kress, Texas, said. “The Chairman has been relentless in his pursuit of solid farm policy and programs that will help not only his direct constituents, but all of us in agriculture whose livelihood depends upon growing food and fiber.”
Reed noted that Conaway’s leadership on the House Agriculture Committee has benefited growers and the entire agricultural industry.
“There are few in Congress who understand the importance of agriculture not only at the farm level but beyond as does Chairman Conaway,” Reed said. “Agriculture powers our economy, and good policy enables United States growers like me and the thousands of growers in PCG’s service area to be competitive in world markets.
“We thank Chairman Conaway for his leadership in helping ensure a strong future for agriculture.”
