Shimkus Statement on Farm Bill Conference Committee Selection

Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) released the following statement after being selected to serve on the House-Senate conference committee on the Farm Bill.

“As the representative of one of the top corn, bean, and pork producing districts in the country, I’m honored to serve on this year’s Farm Bill conference committee. While my role as a member of the Energy & Commerce Committee limits my engagement to rural broadband provisions of the bill, being a part of the deliberations gives a greater voice to the interests of our state and the 15th District.”
