Congressman Marion Berry Congratulates Senator Lincoln

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, United States Representative Marion Berry (AR-01) released this statement congratulating Senator Lincoln on becoming the new Chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee.

“I commend Senator Lincoln for her tireless efforts to protect our rural legacy and ensure a safe and affordable food and fiber supply for this country.  Her ascension to the Chairmanship of the powerful Senate Agriculture Committee is not only an asset for Arkansans – it is also a historic moment for the Senate.  Agriculture is important not only to our economy, but valued by many Arkansans as a way of life.  Our state and the Mid-South will certainly benefit from having its voice represented on this committee,” said Congressman Marion Berry.
