House Agriculture Committee Chairman Peterson Issues Statement on National Ag Day

Washington - House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin C. Peterson released the following statement today in honor of National Ag Day:

“Today is National Ag Day, and in communities across the country, our national emergency has made all of us more aware than ever of how important the people who produce, distribute, cook, and sell our food are to the health and well-being of all Americans.

"We on the House Agriculture Committee have always been proud to stand up for agriculture and food in Washington, but today that role takes on even more meaning as we honor and thank the farmers and ranchers that anchor that system.”
