WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) recently met with the Georgia Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers to discuss the upcoming farm bill and Georgia’s agricultural priorities.
“These young farmers are the next generation of leaders who will continue to make Georgia a strong state for agriculture,” said Senator Perdue. “Like them, I grew up working on a farm and know first-hand that agriculture is a way of life for many Georgians. I was glad to hear about their priorities as we work toward developing a farm bill that will contribute to a safer, stronger, and more abundant agricultural industry.”
Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
