Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield, (KY-01), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power, today was presented with the Kentucky Farm Bureau "Friend of Farm Bureau' Award at a breakfast with nearly 200 Kentuckians this morning. In expressing gratitude for receiving the "Friend of Farm Bureau' award, Whitfield noted his ongoing push for a long-term farm bill.

"I am honored to receive the "Friend of Farm Bureau' award today from the Kentucky Farm Bureau," stated Whitfield. "Agriculture is an important part of our local economy, and I will continue working every single day to make sure our ag community thrives. Kentucky farmers deserve the stability and certainty of a long term farm bill extension, and I will continue fighting to ensure that happens."

The "Friend of Farm Bureau' award is based upon voting records on the Farm Bureau'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.
