ICYMI: King Featured by House Agriculture Committee for “#FarmBillFriday”
In Case You Missed It: Congressman Steve King was featured by the House Agriculture Committee on Friday, November 3rd as part of the Committee’s “#FarmBillFriday” information series on Twitter. In his featured video, King discusses the importance of agriculture to Iowa’s 4th Congressional District, and emphasizes the importance of getting the Farm Bill done. King is a member of the House Agriculture Committee, and serves on the Subcommittee on Livestock and Foreign Agriculture and the Subcommittee on Nutrition.
“We raise a lot of corn here, a lot of soybeans here, and a lot of eggs, and turkeys, and hogs, and cattle. That’s the foundation of the agriculture district that I represent. We’re covered with family farms and a deep tradition going back to the sod that was turned over first by the pioneers that came here in covered wagons.
As I travel around this district, we’ve been picking up advice at Ag advisory committee meetings all over these 39 counties. They’ve given us good advice, and I’m sharing that advice right now with other members on the Ag Committee, and of course our staff, which does a great job. We’ll be working together to produce a good Farm Bill, and I want to see that out on time if we can, get something to the president’s desk about 2018, before the next harvest. This is the 2017 crop, let’s get her done before the 2018 crop.”
