United States : Grassley Receives Agricultural Retailers Associations Legislator of the Year Award

Feb 08, 2019 (Euclid Infotech Ltd via COMTEX) --

The Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) recognized U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa with its 2018 Legislator of the Year award. He also gave a speech to the organization that can be found below.

We are pleased to honor Senator Chuck Grassley this year with our Legislator of the Year award, the Agricultural Retailers Association President and CEO Daren Coppock said. We are grateful for his dedication and continued support of the agriculture industry.

A longtime supporter of agriculture and agriculture retailers, this is the second time Grassley has been honored as ARA Legislator of the Year.

Iowa is an agricultural powerhouse. As a leading producer of pork, corn, soybeans and eggs, agriculture anchors Iowas economy and helps put food on tables across America, Sen. Grassley said. Supporting workers and businesses that help Iowas farmers succeed has been a top priority during my time in the Senate. Its an honor to receive this recognition.

ARA presents its Legislator of the Year award annually to a member, or members, of Congress who champion legislation important to the agricultural retail industry. The awards were presented during the ARA Board of Directors and Committee Meetings in Washington, D.C.
