Cotton Council Congratulates Sen. Cochran on Outstanding Service and a Well-Deserved Retirement

Cotton Council Congratulates Sen. Cochran on Outstanding Service and a Well-Deserved Retirement In response to Senator Thad Cochran’s announcement that he will retire on April 1, the National Cotton Council said he is a highly effective legislator and a true statesman who consistently supported the U.S. cotton industry and all of agriculture during his long career.

Senator Cochran (R-MS), who chairs the Senate Appropriations Committee, is a senior member on the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry -- a panel he chaired during the 108th Congress.

He was the recipient of the U.S. cotton industry’s Harry S. Baker Award in 2000. That award is presented annually by the NCC to a deserving individual who has provided extraordinary service, leadership and dedication to the U.S. cotton industry.

“Senator Cochran was instrumental in securing seed cotton’s eligibility for support under the 2014 farm bill,” NCC Chairman Ron Craft said. “His insight on the challenges facing agriculture and his leadership in shepherding important farm policy through the Senate are greatly appreciated by the U.S. cotton industry.”

Craft, a Plains, Texas cotton ginner, said, “Senator Cochran has been a tireless advocate for providing adequate funding for the cotton industry’s priorities and programs. The industry congratulates him on his outstanding service, and we wish him well in his retirement.”
