Congressman Doug Collins Tours Agriculture In 9th District

Congressman Doug Collins (R-GA-09) announced a tour of agriculture in the 9th district during the August break.  Here’s the presser with the dates:

Congressman Doug Collins (R-GA) will conduct a district-wide tour of various outlets in Georgia’s Ninth District agricultural community. Agriculture and agribusiness remain the top economic industries in Georgia’s Ninth District, and the tour marks Collins’ commitment to farmers throughout Northeast Georgia. Over the month-long district work period, Collins will speak with local groups, visit one-on-one with constituents, and tour industry locations that have made Northeast Georgia a leader in agriculture.

“Our agricultural community is the economic heartbeat of Northeast Georgia,” said Collins. “It’s important for me to truly understand the needs of our farmers to make sure I am representing their best interests in Congress. For the first time in a long time, the House passed a true farm bill that deals with the real needs of the agricultural sector of our economy. I am excited to get out into these communities and hear from folks on what they like about the bill and what they don’t like as much.”
