National Cotton Council Applauds Retiring House Ag Leader Michael Conaway for His Career of Service

Wed, 31 Jul 2019 16:35:30 CDT

National Cotton Council Applauds Retiring House Ag Leader Michael Conaway for His Career of Service In response to Representative Mike Conaway’s (R-TX) announcement today that he will not seek re-election, the National Cotton Council said that the Congressman wholeheartedly served U.S. agriculture, including demonstrating superb leadership through the development and passage of the 2018 farm bill.


Conaway, who is serving his eighth term in the House, chaired the House Agriculture Committee from 2015 through 2018, and is currently serving as that committee’s ranking member.


“The National Cotton Council congratulates Representative Conaway for his extraordinary dedication to American farmers, including cotton farmers,” NCC Chairman Mike Tate said.


Tate noted, for example, that Conaway worked tirelessly to bolster the cotton provisions of the 2014 farm law specifically making seed cotton eligible for the Agriculture Risk Coverage/Price Loss Coverage (ARC/PLC) program as part of a budget agreement in early 2018.


“Congressman Conaway exercised valuable leadership in bolstering cotton’s safety net because U.S. cotton farmers were being hurt by weak global prices and many were being negatively affected by multiple bad weather events,” Tate said. “The entire industry wishes Mr. Conaway and his family all the best in their future endeavors.”
