SPOKANE, WA (November 1, 2018) — Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) was named a Friend of Farm Bureau for her leadership on policies that benefit farmers and support agriculture, Eastern Washington’s number one industry. This is the third time Cathy has received this award from the Washington Farm Bureau.
“I’m leading to make sure agriculture and trade policies put our farmers in Eastern Washington first,” said McMorris Rodgers. “It’s our farmers here at home who are better off now because this Congress has cut taxes and eliminated harmful, Obama-era regulations. To ensure that they can keep their farms running and provide food security to the world, I will continue to deliver results that Eastern Washington farmers can count on. I’m grateful to be named a Friend of the Farm Bureau again.”
“Washington Farm Bureau is proud to award Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers with the American Farm Bureau Friend of Farm Bureau Award for her leadership and support of agriculture during the 115th Congress.” said John Stuhlmiller, Washington Farm Bureau CEO. “Cathy has earned this award multiple times, demonstrating her commitment to American farmers and ranchers. We know she has our backs in D.C.”
