U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) met with members of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau yesterday in Washington. They discussed current deregulation, the 2018 Farm Bill and Sen. Inhofe’s new legislation to support young farmers and ranchers.
“It is always good to visit with the Farm Bureau in Washington,” Inhofe said. “The Oklahoma Farm Bureau has engaged members from all across the state and I value hearing from each of them. They represent an overregulated community that was under attack during the previous administration. However, under President Trump, we’re finally starting to see relief from the overreaching rules, like WOTUS, that targeted farmers and ranchers. It was good to talk to them yesterday about legislation I introduced that will encourage more young Americans to consider a farming or agricultural career and discuss the continuing need to ensure the federal government is best equipped to assist and provide relief to communities impacted by wildfires.”
In January, the American Farm Bureau presented Sen. Inhofe with their highest honor, the Distinguished Service Award. Read more here.
