Congressman Mike Rogers will serve on a conference committee that will help negotiate a final farm bill.
In a statement issued Saturday, Rogers said “Agriculture is a $1 billion industry for my home state of Alabama and provides good-paying jobs for folks across the country. After almost five years of talks and extensions, the House and Senate will work to finalize a new Farm Bill. I am pleased to have the opportunity to represent the interests of the Alabama agriculture industry on the Farm Bill Conference Committee. I look forward to negotiating a long-term package that will help bring certainty to farmers, reduce spending and benefit Alabama.”
Rogers serves as Chairman of the Strategic Forces subcommittee on the Armed Services Committee and is a senior member of the Homeland Security and Agriculture committees.
