Rep. Arrington Honored with Farm Bureau Golden Plow Award

Tue, 22 Jun 2021 08:08:39 CDT

Rep. Arrington Honored with Farm Bureau Golden Plow Award The American Farm Bureau Federation and Texas Farm Bureau today presented Rep. Jodey Arrington (R-Texas) with AFBF’s Golden Plow award. The Golden Plow is the highest honor the organization gives to sitting members of Congress.

“In just a short time in Congress, Congressman Arrington has shown himself to be a strong advocate for farmers and ranchers,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “He knows there is no time to waste on the issues impacting our farmers and ranchers today.”

Congressman Arrington has been a leader on a number of key issues facing agriculture, including trade, regulation and tax reform. “Thanks to Congressman Arrington’s efforts, the estate tax exemption was doubled,” Duvall said. “He continues to work toward the goal of full repeal of the estate tax, which threatens the economic sustainability of our farm and ranch businesses.”

The Texas Farm Bureau endorsed Arrington for the award in honor of his tenure serving rural America in Washington, D.C., since he was elected to the House of Representatives in 2016.

Texas Farm Bureau President Russell Boening said, “Congressman Jodey Arrington fights hard for farmers and ranchers in Texas and across the country. He is extremely deserving of the American Farm Bureau Federation’s prestigious Golden Plow award. Since taking office to serve Texas’ 19th Congressional District in 2017, Congressman Arrington has been a steadfast advocate for farm and ranch families across the state and nation. He has led efforts to strengthen the farm safety net, promote international trade, improve tax policy, reduce government regulations and expand rural infrastructure, among others. He is a leader who truly understands the determination of those involved in agriculture and works each day to provide more opportunity for rural America. Texas Farm Bureau thanks him for his service and congratulates him on this honorable achievement, which is awarded to only one member of the entire U.S. House of Representatives annually.”

AFBF’s Golden Plow award recognizes members of Congress who exemplify agricultural leadership and support of Farm Bureau policies. Recipients are chosen for having a philosophy or record that demonstrates a commitment to sound agricultural policies supported by Farm Bureau, the private enterprise system, fiscal conservatism and reduced federal regulation of businesses and individuals.
