Kansas agribusiness commends Roberts' agricultural leadership record
Kansas agribusiness commends Sen. Pat Roberts' agricultural leadership record. Throughout Roberts' congressional tenure he has actively represented Kansas agribusiness professionals and farmers.
Roberts has worked on farm bills and relevant agricultural issues since his election in 1980. The senator is the first in history to hold the position of ranking Agriculture Committee member in both the House and the Senate and serve as the House Agriculture Committee Chair. In 2011 he was named as ranking minority member for the Senate Agriculture Committee. His recent leadership and cooperation in drafting a farm bill with Chairwoman Sen. Debbie Stabenow has been commended by agriculture across the country. Roberts was replaced by Sen. Thad Cochron as ranking minority member on the Senate Agriculture Committee. Tom Tunnell, president of Kansas Grain and Feed Association said, "Roberts' replacement as minority member is a reflection only of seniority rules. Stabenow and Roberts have been one of the few shining lights in D.C. over the past couple years."
Roberts will continue to serve on the Senate Agriculture Committee. Kansas agribusiness looks forward to his leadership and representation on important farm policies. "I have been working with Roberts since the 80s on farm policy. He has always been great for Kansas, especially Kansas agriculture. It is easy to be proud and trust your senator, when your senator is Pat Roberts," said Tunnell.
