Dr. Bucshon Named “Friend of the Farm Bureau”
Dr. Bucshon receives the “Friend of Farm Bureau Award” members of the Indiana Farm Bureau at his Washington, D.C. office.
Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. was named a “Friend of Farm Bureau” by the Indiana members of the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF).
“Indiana relies on our agriculture industry to put food on the table and support our local economies,” said Bucshon. “As I meet with farmers across the Eighth District and interact with my Agriculture Advisory Committee, I hear an overwhelming uncertainty regarding regulations and policies coming from Washington, D.C. I’m proud to stand up for these hardworking Hoosiers and fight for policies that strengthen Indiana’s agriculture.”
According the American Farm Bureau Federation, “the “Friend of Farm Bureau” award is given at the end of each Congress to those members of Congress who were nominated by their respective state Farm Bureaus and approved by the American Farm Bureau Federation Board of Directors. This award is based upon voting records on AFBF’s priority issues established by the Board of Directors, number of bills that a member has sponsored and co-sponsored, specific leadership role for Farm Bureau on priority issues, and how accessible and responsive that member is to Farm Bureau members and leaders. In addition, the state Farm Bureau lists any other specific reasons why that member should receive this award.”
