Rep. Newhouse Points out the Sparse Number of Farmers in Congress

House Ag Committee Member Dan Newhouse (R., Wash.) indicated in his most recent newsletter that, “Out of 535 people in both the House and the Senate, there are only about 15 farmers and ranchers. As a farmer and the co-chair of the Congressional Fertilizer Caucus, I’ve been working in Congress to increase understanding of the agricultural industry and the importance of fertilizer. During the August district work period, I had the opportunity to take a tour of Agrium fertilizer plant in the Tri-Cities to discuss issues important to Central Washington farmers.”
