Congressman Mike Rogers Selected As A Conferee For 2018 Farm Bill

Congressman Mike Rogers announced today he was selected to serve as a Conferee for the 2018 Farm Bill. 

“In the great State of Alabama, the agriculture industry drives our economy bringing in over $1 billion annually. As the only member of the Agriculture Committee from our state, I am proud to represent the interests of Alabama’s agriculture industry on the Farm Bill Conference Committee this year. I look forward to negotiating legislation that will help set guidelines and bring certainty to our farmers,” Rogers said.

“Today, we move one step closer to delivering a strong, new farm bill to the president’s desk on time as he has called on Congress to do. America’s farmers and ranchers and rural America are struggling right now and they deserve the certainty of a strong farm bill to see them through to better times. The House has pulled together a solid team of conferees –including Rep. Rogers. I’m looking forward to working with Mike, who has been a strong voice for agriculture through this process, and the rest of our House and Senate colleagues to reach a final product that help millions of low-income Americans climb the economic ladder, while standing by our nation’s hard-working farm and ranch families,” said House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (TX-11).

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.
