Simpson to Co-Chair Congressional Dairy Farmer Caucus
Washington, February 4, 2015
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson will once again be a co-chair of the bipartisan Congressional Dairy Farmer Caucus for the 114th Congress. The 80 member bipartisan caucus provides a forum for members and staff to collaborate on many important issues to the dairy industry.
“Idaho dairy producers and their counterparts across the nation face unique challenges,” said Simpson. “It will be important for the dairy industry to be a part of the conversation as this Congress discusses reforming our tax code and rolling back regulations that burden businesses and farmers.”
The Congressional Dairy Caucus is a bipartisan, nationwide group of members that was formed to address the wide range of issues that matter to dairy farmers and their industry partners. The caucus provides a forum for Members of Congress to work together on issues including Farm Bill policy, trade agreements, regulatory policy, and immigration issues.
“We know how important the dairy industry is to our economy here in Idaho,” said Simpson. “This caucus provides a valuable opportunity for Idaho dairy farmers to join the discussion on agricultural policies that impact our entire nation.”
