Rep. John Katko this week was named a ‘Friend of Farm Bureau’ by the American Farm Bureau Federation.
In announcing the honor, the American Farm Bureau Federation stated, “The American Farm Bureau Federation gives the Friend of Farm Bureau award to members of Congress who have supported Farm Bureau’s position on policy issues, as demonstrated by their voting records, and who were nominated by their respective state Farm Bureaus and approved by the AFBF Board of Directors.”
In a statement, Rep. Katko says he has prioritized the needs of farmers in the 24th Congressional District, meeting regularly with his Agricultural Advisory Board, which includes farmers, growers, and producers from all four counties of the district. He says he is “proud to fight on their behalf in Washington. I will continue to support policies that strengthen the ability of our agricultural community to prosper.”
