NAT'L ASSN OF WHEAT GROWERS STATEMENT ON THE CONFIRMATION OF SONNY PERDUE'S CONFIRMATION
Source: National Association of Wheat Growers news release

The following statement may be attributed to the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) President David Schemm:

"NAWG extends our congratulations to Former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue on his confirmation as Secretary of the Department of Agriculture. His experience as a farmer and a governor of an agriculture state make him an ideal candidate to run the country's leading authority on food, agriculture, natural resources, rural development, and nutrition policy.

"Governor Perdue's confirmation comes at a critical time as negotiations for the 2018 Farm Bill reauthorization are underway and as the White House drafts a new trade agenda. He recognizes the essential roles that immigration, trade, and regulation play in a farmer's ability to run their business, all of which will shape the debate as congress works to pass the Farm Bill and appropriations bills. As farmers face challenging economic times, we have confidence that Governor Perdue will bring the agriculture industry back on track.

"We applaud Chairman Roberts and Ranking Member Stabenow for their bi-partisan leadership and cooperation throughout the confirmation process. We look forward to working with Governor Perdue and the new administration on maintaining and forming policies that improve the livelihoods of wheat producers across the country."
